After reading this article on the SuperUser blog I set out to create a (primarily) Windows boot/install USB, with hopefully a few utilities on it as well (see my answer here for examples).

I've looked at MagicIso, which would look like it would work although it only seems to create a .iso big enough for a dual-layer DVD and as my USB is a 16GB one I'd like to use all the space.

YUMI, while it does offer a Windows Vista/7 boot option it only lists one option for a Windows .iso, one that's been extracted to the USB there's no more options to add a Windows .iso.

What I would like is a USB with a boot menu, that will give me a choice to install, from:

  • Windows 7, 32-Bit
  • Windows 7, 64-Bit
  • Windows Server 2008, 32-Bit
  • Windows Server 2008, 64-Bit
  • Windows Web Server 2008, 64-Bit

It would be nice if I could also add things like a bootable Ubuntu .iso and a DBAN option, but if not I'll settle for just the Windows option.

There no such utility. But there is guide which you can follow.

The tutorial is intended for an advanced user.

This method describes how you can place all your Windows Vista 32-bit/64-bit ISOs, Windows 7 32-bit/64-bit ISOs, Server 2K8 ISOs etc. all on one (large) USB Flash drive and install any version of Windows onto any system whenever you like.
