    I used to use Partition Magic before. What's usually being used for multi-booting these days ?

    I used to use Vcom System Commander for multiple Windows until it was bought out.
    Now I dual-boot between Windows and Linux so I just let the Mint Linux installer handle it.

    Install lunax mint after windows, you get dual bot. That is easiest.
    Or install GRUB from lunax live CD.

    Buy tray-less HDD drive bay and another HDD. Install 2nd OS on new HDD. Swap out HDDs and therefore OS as you please. Enjoy.
    Disadvantage: Costs money, it's more work to switch OS and doing it often will wear out the disk connectors, no data sharing.
    Advantage: No fiddling with boot loaders, you can't fuck up one OS from within the other, no data sharing (yep, that's on both lists).
