YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) is a portable application designed to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive. This Universal tool can quickly create a Multiboot bootable USB flash drive containing several different ISO files.
Use it to boot from USB your favorite Live Linux portable Operating Systems, Linux and Windows Installers, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, backup, penetration testing, diagnostic tools and more. This tool makes it easy for anyone to create their own customized multi purpose Bootable USB.
Contrary to MultiBootISOs 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 to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.
YUMI offers thrree versions:
- YUMI exFAT supports exFAT format & 4GB+ files. BIOS and UEFI USB boot.
- YUMI Legacy supports either NTFS or Fat32 format. BIOS USB boot only.
- YUMI UEFI supports Fat32 only. BIOS and UEFI USB booting (Distro dependent).
The YUMI App has been considered by many to be the Best Bootable USB Creator. It replaces our old Multiboot ISOS tool and is also the successor to the singular Universal USB Installer (UUI). Tools that were amongst the first ever made for the purpose of creating a bootable flash drive. For the most part, files are generally stored within the Multiboot folder. This makes for a nicely organized Portable Multiboot Drive that can still be used for traditional storage purposes.
YUMI Multiboot Bootable USB Flash Drive Creation
This tool works much like Universal USB Installer, except instead of imaging a single ISO to USB, it can be used to store and run more than one distribution from your thumb drive. Enabling you to Boot Multiple ISO files from the same device. Distributions can also easily be uninstalled or removed with the tool!
