In this tutorial I am going to show you the steps to make a multiple operating systems bootable pen drive or USB with windows10/8/7/xp, live ISO of Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora,Kali and any Linux distribution in a single pen drive. With this bootable pen drive you can install any OS by selecting one option.
I will use “multisystem script” to make the multi boot bootable pen drive. So first download the “multiboot script” file from link given below. Click the link below to download the script.
A pop up download window will appear. Just download the file and extract the file in any location you want. I am going to extract the script on the desktop.
Now open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T and run these commands.
chmod +x install-depot-multisystem.sh
A small window will pop-up.
click “Ok” then a new terminal window will pop up. Enter your password and hit “Enter”. It will start downloading all the package needs to install multiboot in your system.
Note: You should be online to download the packages.
After complete downloading the packages a confirmation window will pop up. Click “Ok”
Now open multiboot via search and insert a FAT32 format pen drive into USB port and click “Refresh” button. The inserted pen drive or USB will be shown in the multiboot window. Select the USB and click “Confirm” button.
In few second it will open a window to create a bootable pen drive. “For this post I have already created bootable USB will four ISO two Ubuntu ISO, one Linux mint ISO and windows 10”.
Now drag the ISO of any OS (Windows or Linux Based) in the area titled as “Select an .iso or .img” in multiboot window.
After dragging the ISO into the area, a black window will pop up for root password. Enter the password and hit “Enter”. The multiboot will start the addition of the ISO in the multiboot boot list.
After completing the process close the multiboot and Restart the system and boot from pen drive. You will see all the added ISO in the boot list. Select one and it will load the ISO for installation. You can add multi OS ISO in the multiboot boot list in the bootable pen drive.
