I am surprised (but certainly believe you) on hearing your problems with 
dual boot.

Personally, I have multiple partitions on all of my machines, and never 
have problems with dual booting, both on PC and Mac machines.  There 
must be something I've learned to be careful about doing, so I don't run 
into the problems you experienced.

The last time I had problems with dual booting was back in 12.04 days, 
where GRUB had problems recognizing other OS's on the drive.
