Yes, Of course, You can boot multiple Operating System (OS) in your Laptop/Desktop. The boot method has some rules i.e. you first need to install Mac then Windows then Linux or Mac then Linux and then Windows. Mac OS should be boot at first because Mac uses HFS or HFS+ file system where as Windows uses NTFS and Ext4 Journal File System in Linux Operating System. Once you boot the Mac OS successfully, you must install Clover Boot Loader which I have video at the bottom of this post.

Single Boot



Duel or Triple or Quad Boot
I have provided the step by step on how to boot Mac OS on your Laptop in above video. The single boot is not recommended as a primary OS for hackintosh Laptop because although perfect hackintosh fails sometimes on updates. so that duel boot with windows is recommended . Now, Assuming that you have already installed Mac on your PC. All the duel, triple, quad,etc. have same process, all you need to do is create separate partition for each. Goto Application Folder > Utilities > Diskutility then then Click on your Mac Partition and click partition. [See Image Attached below]

After click on partition a window will appear and click as per numbers serially. (Mac drive click (+) Give partition Name, Choose volume type then select size click Apply.) I have 1 TB(1024 GB) hard disk so I will partition like follows:

Size & Volume Type
Mac OS - 180 GB
Remix OS (Android) - 20 GB (MS-Dos FAT)
Windows - 250 GB (MS-Dos FAT)
Linux - 50 GB (MS-Dos FAT)
Files - 500 GB (MS-Dos FAT)

You might have change different volume size but remember it or note it down size and name for it because when you try to install windows/linux the volumes names are not shown and you've to recognize it by size. Now once you have done all you'll see like in the last image. Now Let's go for the boot.

Files is 500 GB and it is formatted as MS-DOS because the Files partition will contain all the documents such as music, videos, photos, movies, etc. so that I can access then from all three operating system easily.

Example:
When I feel boar I can watch to movies no mater which operating system I am using.
iTunes, Windows Media player and Rhythm Music Player (Linux) uses same library for playing music from Files Volumes > Music Folder. If I don't have this folder I have to copy the music folder in all three operating system.

Installing Windows

Insert your bootable windows USB or DVD drive, then in the partition screen, Select the partition with 250 GB volume (Remember? I told you to note the size). It'll give you message like Windows cannot be Install in this drive. just click the 250 GB volume and Delete Volume then click New Partition Name it and click Next to install windows. Now, once you've successfully installed windows on your machine, then just reboot & process to next step installing Linux (if you like to triple boot) otherwise skip Installing Linux and proceed to Final Step below!!

Installing Linux

Now again insert your Linux Bootable USB drive then boot with USB, For dell Users, Press F12 and select USB. Now, In the partition screen click the 50 GB volume and click on (-) icon to delete the volume then you'll see 50 GB Free space with green mark click on the free space and click (+) and then Choose Partition Type as Linux Swap and Volume Type as Logical Partition then give volume size 2 GB. then again click on Free space and click on (+) and select partition type as Ext4 File System and select type as Primary Partition. (48 GB in my case because 2 GB is used for SWAP Partition above). Now, click on Install Now and wait for installation finishes. Once completed reboot. Please read detail guide on installing Ubuntu 18.04 here by @ALiveVam

Installing Remix OS
I will just summarize here how to install Remix OS here full detail explain guide is here please take a look at it. Open windows operating system, goto disk management and select 20 GB volume we have created above and format it to Fat32 then run Remix OS Installer tool then select the drive letter for volume, once completed reboot the system. You will see grub bootloader. If you failed you must see this guide.


Final Step

Now here's where noobies bangs his head into wall. Lol :p:D:p Now, when you reboot You will only see the Ubuntu or only a windows turning on. OMG !! People gets scared of it and ask for help. The solution is you just need to make clover bootloader to boot at top.(Detailed Explained about Learn more about Boot Loaders click here) Goto Bios F2 in dell, Mostly (ESC or Del in other Laptop/PC), once you are in bios, goto Boot Order then move Clover Boot Loader to Top, save and exit. And there'll will find All the OSes. If you haven't installed clover yet then follow the video below. Thank's if you got any problem ask be below.

thank you...will wait :)
I think it is this: https://github.com/badruzeus/CloverThemes/blob/master/Luxury/screenshot.png :)
Edit: found their post here https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/288685-clover-themes/?do=findComment&comment=2483105 in which the function buttons are gold too. I think the screenshot.png file was made in early stages. The github and sourceforge downloads have same screenshot.png so I think they are the same.

Sorry for too late reply. I saw this comment but I was also looking for this theme for more than a year. Found it just today :D
