[MultiBoot] - YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator (Windows)

Source from:

YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer), is the successor to MultibootISOs. It can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. Contrary to MultiBootISO's which used grub to boot ISO files directly from USB, YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, and reverts to using grub if necessary.

Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes.

Creating a YUMI Multiboot MultiSystem USB Flash Drive
YUMI works much like our Universal USB Installer, except it can be used to install more than one distribution to run from your USB.

How to Create a MultiBoot USB Flash Drive

  1. Run* YUMI- following the onscreen instructions
  2. Run the tool again to Add More ISOs/Distributions to your Drive
  3. Restart your PC setting it to boot from the USB device
  4. Select a distribution to Boot from the Menu and enjoy!

That's all there is to it. You should now be booting your favorite distributions from your custom Multi-Boot USB device!

How It Works: YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) enables each user to create their own custom Multiboot UFD containing only the Distributions they want. New Distributions can be added to the UFD each time the tool is run.

Store ISO downloads in the ISOFILES Directory created where the tool is run. Supported downloads stored there are auto-detected by the tool.

IMORTANT: If the Multiboot ISO tool was used on the drive, you must reformat the device and start over. YUMI utilizes Syslinux directly, and only if necessary chainloads grub, so it is not at all compatible with the previous Multiboot ISO tool.
