YUMI (Universal Multiboot Installer) is a USB boot tool that can be used to create a bootable multiplatform USB drive. Quickly create a multiboot USB flash drive containing multiple ISO files. Use it to launch your favorite Live Linux, Linux, and Windows Installers operating systems, antivirus tools, disk emulators, backups, penetration testing, diagnostic tools, and more. This tool allows you to create a multifunctional bootable USB for everyone.
YUMI is the recommended alternative to Universal USB Installer and older ISO MultiBoot tools. It was one of the first tools designed to create a bootable USB flash drive. Files are generally stored in the Multiboot folder, and a multiboot USB flash drive is organized which can still be used for traditional storage purposes.
YUMI was originally designed to store and play "LIVE" versions. Operating systems and USB devices should work in Linux, and use it to install Linux from a flash drive to a hard drive with most distros. If you find a distribution on which the installer is not working, please let me know. Use Thumb Drive to run more than one distribution. Distributions can also be deleted using the same tool!
Note: YUMI exFAT version is still running. Currently, older or UEFI types are recommended. Here are the main differences:YUMI Legacy supports NTFS or Fat32 format. USB boot is BIOS only. YUMI UEFI only supports Fat32. Set up BIOS and UEFI USB (depends on distribution). YUMI Legacy (USB Boot BIOS only)
You can use this version if your computer supports BIOS booting, and if you don't want to boot Windows installers from YUMI in UEFI mode. Most modern motherboards still support Legacy BIOS in CMS Legacy mode.Install ISO files to USB from the ISO settings page of the USB multi-boot menu
You must make a backup copy of the data you want to save before use. Format options When the Wipe Full Disk option is selected, all partitions that share this disk number are erased.
How to Create a Multiboot USB DriveRun the YUMI file. exe as per the on-screen instructions to add more ISO files/distributions to your drive, restart your computer and boot the device from USB and select the boot distribution from the list and enjoy.
That's it. Now you need to boot your favorite distros from your dedicated multiboot USB device.
How it works:
YUMI (Universal Multiboot Installer) allows any user to create their own custom multiboot UFD containing only the distros they want, in order to install. A new distribution can be added to UFD each time the tool is launched.
If you run YUMI from the same location where you save the ISO files, they should be automatically detected (*see known issues below), eliminating the need to go through each ISO file. Note that this version of UEFI is not compatible with the older version. In addition, the USB drive must be in Fat32 format to support booting in UEFI mode. The fat32format utility is used to format drives larger than 32 GB as Fat32.
