Multi Boot USB drive
I would like to create a sort of 'Ultimate Boot USB'. Is there a way of booting a computer from a usb drive to a menu where you have the option to load a number of different bootable programs such as UBCD, BackTrack, a Linux LiveCD with GParted etc etc.
At the moment i have about 4 usb drives with different things on and i would like to condence them all into one.
cant seem to find anything on the net.
Free if possible.
WinSetupfromUSB is supposed to do something like that, but the one time I got around to trying it I was unsuccessful :(.
I have created one today... I have a universal driver, I could send you this so you can create it... is it ghost you are using?
thanks, im not sure thats what im looking for.
Its my fault for not explaining very well.
I have 2-3 memory sticks that each have a different program that will load when the computer boots up. for example, Ultimate Boot CD, BackTrack 3, a Linux LiveCD, XP CD, etc etc.
What im looking for is something so that when i boot from a single usb stick, it shows some kind of menu that i can select which of these different programs i want to load.
I want a multi boot usb drive.
so kinda like the menu you get who you boot hirens boot disc? I think i know what you mean but don't know how you'd go about doing it. Could be useful though :)

This is the easiest way I figured out to do it. It can boot, but Windows 7 can't really install. It's missing a CD/DVD driver. Any idea how to fix?
- MultiBootISOs-v0.3.exe (Google it)
1) Format to FAT32 (Not sure if NTFS works, I didn't try at the end)
2) Run MultiBootISOs-0.3.exe (run as Windows XP SP3 if you get an error)
3) Move ISOs over to ROOT
4) Edit menu.lst with NOTEPAD with your ISOs names and then copy/replace the menu.lst on the USB
On my USB I have the following ISOs
- Windows 7 Activated
- Windows XP SP3
Of course, the power of EduGeek means that the first hit is your post and then a load of others which are no use :-)
