Triple Booting 101: With Ubuntu, Fedora and Windows

Have you ever wanted to install multiple operating systems on your computer but weren't quite sure how to go about doing it? Now you can! In this course you'll learn how to set up multi-booting on a Linux computer and have all three OS coexist peacefully.

Multi-booting on a personal computer is usually a complex project and requires multiple configured operating systems, special boot loaders and specifically configured partitions. With this course we walk you through the process step by step, and for the purposes of demonstration we’ll be covering Windows 7, Fedora, and Ubuntu.

Note: this is a 2016 re-release of this popular course, so while it uses the still popular Windows 7 as an example, please see the notes about Windows 10 in the free introduction video. (Suffice it to say the process works fine with Windows 10.)

These three operating systems are very different from each other. For instance, Windows is a consumer-favorite OS, is broadly supported, easy to use and can run just about software you throw at it. Then we have Fedora, a favored distribution by Linux users who prefer a more advanced experience and is the leading edge of Linux technology. Finally, we have Ubuntu, Linux’s "golden goose." This version of Linux is similar but not the same as Windows, and it’s the easiest Linux to use and the most widely supported distribution on the market.

What you will learn

Over the course of seven lessons of easy-to-follow and info-packed training, we take you through every aspect of creating a triple boot computer, such as the setup of the bootloader and each of the three OS installations.

In this course you'll learn how you can run Fedora, Ubuntu and Windows simultaneously. Additionally, you'll be taught how to partition a hard-drive for use with triple booting and all the basic skills to add any OS as part of a triple boot setup.

At the end of the course you will be proficient in setting up a triple boot in Linux.

Who should do this?

Ideally to enjoy this course you are a beginner or intermediate learner. You should have basic knowledge of Linux and should ideally have some idea what a bootloader and OS are, but that's not essential for you to enjoy the course. A familiarity with installing software on your computer is also of benefit but not essential, as you will be walked through all the steps in turn. Basically, if you are an enthusiast rather than an expert and are keen to learn, you will get a lot out of this course.
