Since the Pine 64 only supports booting from the micro SD card, it would need to be partitioned with one partition having a boot loader, and a partition for each operation system. I do not know if having multiple operating systems on a partitioned micro SD card would work.

This topic came up initially (at least I think it did, it was a while ago) because dual-booting (or multi-booting) is something that is possible on the Raspberry Pi, which is another small SoC system that utilises micro sd cards to hold the operating system(s).

I looked into that and there is a program called BerryBoot that allows multiple versions of Linux to be installed on the same SD card, however in will not work with non Linux operating systems.
