I have several Boot CD's/DVD's where I'm able to make a bootable USB-stick and put into it. But I can do this separately only. Is it possible to merge several bootable CD's/DVD's into a single bootable USB-stick where I can choose which system to boot from? I'll be happy for a good link, or if you just tell me the steps with the right expressions that i can google.

Yes this is possible, try out a great application called Yumi it allows you to make a long boot list with an iso if you have it, you can even use unsupported bootable iso's to be included.

  • Really cool tool, and also very useful web site. Thanks a lot.

This possible using a bootloader like grub - or if you are working with Windows grub4dos

In the config file you can add multiple ISO images you can select from in the boot menu.

Another nice tool for Windows is RMPrepUSB for which you can find a video tutorial on YouTube that shows how to create a bootable USB-Stick. By editing the menu.lst you can add multiple ISO images.

Alternatively if you prefer a clean hardware sulution take a look onto the ISOStick - an USB stick that includes an hardware emulated usb cd/dvd-drive booting from an ISO contained on the stick.
