yumi-thumbUsually, whenever you create a live Linux USB, you should only install one distro per USB. What if you would like to install several distros inside same USB drive?

YUMI, is short for “Your Universal Multiboot Installer”, is often a nifty multiboot Linux USB creator for Windows that allows you to install multiple distros onto a USB drive. When you boot it, you'll be able to select which distro you wish to boot into. YUMI is provided by PenDriveLinux and is functionally like the Universal USB Installer that we reviewed earlier.

To get started, simply download the exe file from PendriveLinux. There is no installation required. Once download, simply double-click the .exe file to own it.

Plug with your USB drive and select the drive letter inside the first field. Next, pick the distribution that you would like to install and add the file road to the ISO file. If you don’t contain the ISO file, you should check the “Download the ISO” box and it will load the download link within your browser. Lastly, click “Create”.

When mobile phone is completed, click “Next”. You will be prompted if you want to add another distro on the USB drive. Click “Yes”.

Repeat the same process because above, but on this occasion choosing another distro.

Repeat the procedure again and again til you have added every one of the distro you wish to run in the USB drive. For this tutorial, I have added three distro: Comodo Rescue, Damn Small Linux and AVG Anti-virus scanner.

Boot the computer with the USB drive. You will be able to determine which distro you would like to boot into.

Uninstalling distro


If you wish to remove an installed distro so as to free up space to setup another distro, you can accomplish it with YUMI at the same time. Simply check the “view or remove installed distro box” and it will load the uninstaller mode where you can view the installed distro and take off the one that is useless.

Conclusion

They will sure be of use sometime down the road.
