Hypervisors are virtualization, which means there's an underlying OS on top of which the other ones are running. Not true multi-boot.

In Windows you can manually edit the boot.ini file to boot the system into the OS of your choice, or you could use a GUI program like Easy BCD to do the same thing in Windows that Grub does in Linux. But I don't think there's a multi-platform app that will give you the exact same controls in both Windows and Linux.
