Remove System Reserved allows the Windows bootloader to show the Linux boot option. I could never get it to do that until I removed System Reserved.

Very true
All Linux would be able to do is install along side and that is way too cozy

Thank you both very much.
Could you, pretty please, also comment on my confusion in the second question and the screenie.
As well as implications for (not imminent) need to install windows 10 and triple-boot.

Hi,
I'd make life as simple as possible
You want to triple boot
Get 3 hdd's or ssd's
Install each without the others connected using one of these
Amazon.com: Vantec 2.5-Inch Dual Bay Trayless SATA III - 6G Mobile Rack (MRK-225S6-BK): Computers & Accessories
Install each iso.
