Hi, I partitioned my HDD to four partitions.

I first Installed Windows 10 Technical Preview in first partition and it loaded fine. Then I Installed android x86 on the second partition. It installed GRUB which allowed me to choose between Android and Windows. And next I installed Fedora 20 on the third partition which installed GRUB2 bootloader which allows me to choose between Windows 10 and Fedora, but not the android.

Updating the Grub doesn't help.

you have to add a custom entry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom
