How do I create a bootable USB Flash PcRepair Kit?
I wanted to create rescue/recovery/reanimator USB multi-bootable flash drive a year ago. I want to create the ultimate USB flash drive that would have the most if not all important stuff very self respected computer technician needs when restoring computer either from viruses, to previous point or previous working image completely however the most important is just to fix computer to restore it to previous optimal working condition without resolving to long processes of restoration.
I have heard of something as "multi-boot USB flash drive" which allows to choose what to boot without restarting computer or changing from one flash drive to another to load different utilities. The problem is that it requires customized boot-menu coded (Linux?) which goes something like /dva/hdd0 ... well you get the point.
Question is, how much time it would take average computer geek to do this and will 8 GB flash drive be enough? (which I doubt and think 16 GB should be good). I want to have antivirus with self-update in MSDOS capability, Windows operating system and all the other important stuff with utilities on flash drive. And I assume I will need low class flash drive to prioritize on small files since transfer rate does not play important role here, but access and write times and longevity of flash drive.
Also, how much would it cost to have image made with all the stuff I mentioned here?
