Benefits of Multiboot USB


  • Freedom – Select between multiple OS’s on boot time. No need to install OS’s one by one from USB as traditional USB boot creator programs like Unetbootin and others limited user to install single OS on a USB at a time.

  • Live USB – Most Linux distributions can be tested without installing on system. #LinuxLove
  • Persistence – All the commands executed in terminal or files copied/downloaded vanishes when the live OS restarts.Persistence feature gives the power to hold the data/information on the Live USB even if the system is restarted .

  • Rescue Disk – Anti-virus program like Kaspersky, Norton, AVG etc provides Bootable ISO file with latest virus definitions that allows a user to rescue their system when critically infected by viruses. In case when system does not boot up , rescue disk is very helpful.

[*]Start the YUMI program and click “I Agree“
[*]Select your USB from the Drop-Down menu.
F:\ (MULTIBOOT) in my case.

[*]Now click the Drop-Down menu and select “Windows Vista/7/8 Installer” then click browse and select the ISO file.Optional – You may also format the drive by selecting the Format checkbox.

[*]Click “next” then “Yes” Wait for the Process to complete
[*]Then the program completes it will ask you for adding another Distribution i.eOperating SystemClick “Yes” if you want to add another Operating System

else Click “No” and Close.

Installing Kali Linux on USB

Step 2: Select the “Kali Linux” from the Drop-Down menu and select your Kali Linux ISO file.

Repeat Step 3 onwards.

NOTEUSB Partition type MUST BE FAT32 . If you are Using multiple OS on USB drive.
If installing only Windows then NTFS Partition will work fine

Kali Linux Installation (Detect and Mount CD-ROM Fix)

It was seen that Kali Linux is showing error while installation unlike other Linux distribution.
So here is a solution you can use any time using your Multiboot USB

When you see this error screen

[size][url][/url]Click continue and it show you a list of options.
Go for “Execute a shell“. Click Continue

Now type the following


  • df


and check for /dev/sdb1, most probably it should be /media


  • rm -r /cdrom/
  • ln -s /media/multiboot/kali-linux-2.0-amd64 /cdrom
  • exit

NOTE: In my case I have been using Kali 2.0 64-bit. Yours can be different. Use appropriate version. In case you don’t know just press <TAB> after /media/multiboot/kali-linux- to check for auto completion.

What we have actually done is that we have removed the contents for /cdrom directory and linked the kali-linux-2.0-amd/ content to /cdrom directory using ln command.

This tricked the installer into thinking the files on the USB thumb drive were located on an installer CD. The issue will be resolved and the installer will be able to proceed past the point it was stuck at.

Now you can continue with the installation simply

Now you have Windows ,Linux and/or Anti-virus Rescue disk on your USB drive.You can boot it on any system.

Simply plug-in your USB ,Re/start the system and set your USB as first Boot priority and install Windows from USB or run Live Linux.

Booting options may differ with different systems(manufacturer)

Recommended USB:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (32 GB USB is best for Installing Windows|Kali Linux| Rescue Disk all at one place)

Using USB 3.0, your Installation will finish much faster than that of 2.0
