At this point "BOOTMGR" is not going to work for you. That is a Windows boot file and it will no longer recognize your hard drive partition order once you have installed Linux.

In order to set up a boot menu showing all 3 operating systems, you will need to configure your GRUB or LILO file in Linux. Knowing what distribution of Linux you have is very important, as some use GRUB and others use LILO.

Editing your GRUB or LILO file can be a bit tedious if you are not used to Linux. Here are some basic tutorials:
