It mostly costs a lot of CPU and a lot of I/O for absolutely zero benefit to the Linux user. To protect your Linux system you need to harden the security (firewall, ids, restricted use of...

I solved this issue

I re-downloaded the image and burnt it to the SD card using a PC instead of a Mac and the card would boot.

Does anyone else find they have problems when burning with a Mac?

Re: Can I triple boot Raspbian, OSMC and Recalbox?

Thanks for the reply @Procount

I have tried using Berryboot and the closest I could get was Raspbian and OpenElec.

I have also tried NOOBs but the only option on there was to install Raspbian.

Could you guide me through the steps to get the images installed for a triple bootloader?
