Well, one would definitely need a lot more information to be able to
answer that question.

Anyway, I am not entirely sure what you are trying to achieve here, but,
have you considered using virtualization software like VirtualBox or
QEMU? You should also look into Vagrant, it makes spinning up VMs very
easy. Multi-booting seems very cumbersome to me...
