    Glad to know I am not the only one that did this. The most I have had going at one time is three OS versions though. I have them on different drives now rather than different partitions. I tried to re-create this recently with one partition for SL and one for Mavericks but haven't been able to generate a "bootable" Mavericks clone.

    It's been a while since I did it...but if I remember correctly...it wasn't much different to do than any other OS version. Here's a link with the procedure:

    IIRC that's basically what i did. Also tried cloning using the usual tools. Nothing produced a "bootable" clone. At the time I was trying to set this up because Tech Tool Pro was reporting bad blocks on my internal drive.

    I will be trying this again when I have a bit more time.
