Triple Booting Windows 8.1, XP and Yosemite on MBP

I have a somewhat curious issue. I'm trying to set up a triple boot on my MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.4 with Windows 8.1, XP and Yosemite (OS X).

Can it be done?

My machine can't pull off a VM. All three OSes run fine independently on the machine so drivers aren't an issue. Right now, I'm dual booting with OS X and 8.1. Here is the disk.

/dev/disk0
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *250.1 GB disk0
1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS Yosemite 100.0 GB disk0s2
3: Microsoft Basic Data Windows 149.7 GB disk0s3

I think the issue will be the Windows bootloader. IIRC it prefers to have Windows first for the older OSes like XP.

Has anyone tried something like this?
