The idea here is to create a triple boot computer with a focus on WIN for Gaming, Mac for Work and Daily Stuff, and Linux for use if I need it. I am new to the game, but love working on mac but sometimes games require WIN. So I want to create something I can use for all. Neat idea, but dont wanna bother if its not worth risks.

I come to you with questions... Is this doable??? Ideally it would run 3 seperate Hard Drives for each Operating system.


Here is the part list i came up with for my WIN build, where can i see whats compatiable for Hackintosh? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/sBJ7TC

Thanks.

Here is a link to a tripple boot guide created by 'Going Bald' over at Tonymacx86, it sets out what you need to do to get the tripple boot system working - https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-multibooting-uefi-on-separate-drives.198869/

The premis is that you use Clover as your bootloader, which gives access to macOS, Windows and Linux from the Clover boot screen. Each OS can be selected and booted individually.

You have to create a working CLOVER folder for your system, before you do any of the multi-booting processes.

I did a triple boot setup about 6 months ago. I followed a guide very similar to the one Edhawk mentioned. I have 3 separate SSD drives a 160GB for Linux, a 250GB for Windows and a 500GB for Mac OS.
If you have installed Windows and Linux before those 2 should not be any problem. I initially installed Mojave and it went smooth as well. However, when I upgraded recently to Catalina I did run into some Clover issues that Edhawk helped me out with.

Good luck!
