Boot Multiple ISO from USB (MultiBoot USB)

default Boot Multiple ISO from USB (MultiBoot USB)

Post by Admin on Fri Aug 20, 2010 4:16 pm

How to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive that you can use to Boot Multiple ISO Files from USB. Please note that you might need a 8GB-16GB or larger USB flash device to be able to support every bootable ISO entry. I will update and add more Bootable ISO files to the list as I find the time to test them. You can also contact me to submit working Bootable ISO entries for inclusion.

MultiBoot USB Menu (Simply select an ISO to boot from USB)

MultiBootISOs USB Creator

Basic Essentials to create a Multi ISO Boot USB Flash Drive

* Fat32 Formatted Flash Drive (NOT Superfloppy)
* PC that can boot from USB-HDD or in some cases USB-ZIP
* Windows XP/Vista/7 host to create the Bootable USB
* MultiBootISOs-USB-Creator.exe
* Your select ISO Files

IMPORTANT: Starting at version 2.0, the tool now copies your select ISO to the drive and adds the menu entry (in order) based on the Distro you choose to install each time the tool is run. This enables each user to create a custom Multiboot UFD containing only the Distributions chosen.

Version 2.1.2 Changelog: Added Donation Button. Automated manual entries. Downloaded ISOs are stored in an ISOFILES Directory created where the tool is run. Any matching ISOs put there will be autodetected.
How to Boot Multiple ISO Files from USB

Download MultiBootISOs Download MultiBootISOs

1. Run MultiBootISOs-USB-Creator-v2.1.2.exe 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 the ISO you want to Boot from the Menu and enjoy!

That's all there is to it. You should now be booting your favorite ISO files from your Multi-Boot USB device!
MultiBootISOs can create a UFD containing one or all of the following:

* Puppy Linux
* TinyCore 3
* EasyPeasy 1.6
* SLAX 6.1.2
* Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10
* Peppemint Linux OS
* EEEBuntu 3.0.1
* Linux Mint 9

* YlmF OS
* xPUD (Simple Netbook Distro)
* FreeDOS
* Ubuntu Rescue Remix
* Partition Wizard 5

* Windows Vista/7 Install Disk | Create the ISO from your DVD

Known Issues:

It is REQUIRED that your flash drive contain a formatted partition! Some flash drives ship formatted "superfloppy" (without a partition table). Those drives will need to be reformatted to use a partition, so they can be detected by BIOS as a Hard Drive. If you are not presented with a Boot Menu as pictured above, or the menu is found at (fd0) instead of (hd0,0) the problem is likely that you are trying to boot the flash drive as a superfloppy. You should reformat your flash drive using one of the methods listed HERE, then reinstall MultiBootISOs, and attempt to boot using the USB-HDD or USB-ZIP BIOS option or see if the drive shows up as a selectable hard disk in your Boot Menu.

Some Flakey BIOSs may try to initiate your USB as a Floppy (fd0) regardless of how the USB is formatted, and the USB Boot method you use. In this case, you should seek a BIOS firmware update
from the manufacturer of your motherboard.

Additional Notes:

You can boot Ubuntu or an Ubuntu based remix with persistence by using our Casper-RW Creator script to create a Casper-RW file on your USB device. Only "ONE Distro" can use casper persistence

If you don't have a floppy drive and get fd0 errors while booting, simply add floppy.allowed_drive_mask=0 to the kernel line for that menu entry. Although the best fix is to disable floppy in BIOS.

To load Ophcrack tables when booted in this fashion, the tables folder needs to exist at the root of the USB device. Example E:\tables\vista_free. Download Tables from the Official site and unzip to your USB.

Boot Errors: While trying to run an ISO from USB, If you get a Boot error saying:

Error 60: File for drive emulation must be in one contiguous disk area

You'll need to defragment your ISO using one of the following tools:

contig - Command line tool to defragment ISO files.

wincontig – GUI tool to defragment ISO files.

For information on how to try other ISO's, see the "CDROM emulation (virtualization) section" in the official GRUB4DOS Readme file. Additionally, Here is another good third party guide that explains how things work.

If you successfully boot from a Linux Based ISO that isn't listed, let me know and I will add it to the list.
