Most IT professionals have a bootable USB with recovery software, antivirus scanners, bootable Linux, etc…. The problem is, however, that they need several USB sticks for each of these images. Well, here’s a solution: Use YUMI, a Universal Multiboot Installer. YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer), is the successor of MultibootISOs.
The tool allows you to create a multiboot USB flash drive with multiple operating systems, antivirus programs, disk cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. You can also uninstall the images.
How to create a MultiBoot USB flash drive
- Start YUMI and follow the on-screen instructions.
- Run the tool again to add more images to your player.
- Restart your PC by setting it to boot from the USB device
- Select a distribution to boot from the menu.
According to the developer, it works like this :
YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) allows each user to create their own custom multiboot UFD that contains only the desired distributions in the installation order. Each time the tool is executed, a new distribution can be added to the UFD. If you run YUMI at the same location where you save ISO downloads, they should be automatically detected.
Windows 7 or Vista Installer makes Ubuntu or any remix based on Ubuntu (I.E. Linux Mint) hang at startup. A quick solution is to temporarily rename the Windows SOURCES folder located in the root directory of the USB device.
