Why do you want to do a multiboot on 1 VM versus running 3 individual virtual machines?

Hello Cclloyd,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

Don't see any reason it won't work on your computer. I'm guessing XP and Vista are already there. If not start with the oldest first. I and others have had 5+ OS installed at one time. If you have any problems/questions just ask. Check out the tutorials on installing if need be.

Hope this helps.
