Thanks for the feedback everyone. PalancarFeb 17, Each OS only sees the partitions you want it to see. Originally this posts was using Debian Etch and Mandriva as examples.
This article is aimed at distro hoppers who like to install multiple Linux. It's also Ubuntu-based, which makes it easy to run the Refind boot. I've really gotten into testing and experimenting with various Linux distributions recently.
boot Installing multiple linux distros alongside Windows with GRUB and UEFI Ask Ubuntu
When you install a distro, it'll install GRUB, the boot manager. Take one Linux OS with grub installed in the partition boot sector, not in the MBR.
Dual boot Linux, two distributions, sharing partition scheme for sharing documents.
Thanks for your help. The other partitions "don't exist". Please visit this page to clear all LQ-related cookies.
I suppose there is a forth option and that's to run a VM of the Manjaro from within Lubuntu. What is the best way to multi-boot several Linux distros?

That is, if you use Ubuntu's GRUB to control the boot process but you also install, say, Fedora, then when you update Fedora's kernel, Ubuntu's GRUB won't know about that fact until you reboot into Ubuntu and type sudo update-grub or until you update Ubuntu's kernel.
As a general rule and IMHO, installing multiple Linux distributions to multi-boot on a single computer is more trouble than it's worth. For the most.
Dual boot with two Linux distributions
I've decided to try out a few Linux Distros and would like to know if I need to have have 1 Boot and Home partition that can be used amongst multiple Distros? multiple Linux partitions but it would be mostly ubuntu based.
So you have a dual-partition pendrive, on its first partition should be the win, and the Linux on the second. Makes going crazy low risk! You must log in or sign up to reply here.
