    Re: MultiBootUSB - Install and boot multiple Linux from Pendrive / Flash drive / USB

    I'm using opensuse 11.4 and I use grub-legacy as my bootloader. However I have grub2 installed. Will this multiboot script work with this configuration?

    MultiBootUSB uses its own grub2. Yours won't affect it at all.

    I have not tested it on Opensuse but if grub2 installed on the host system then it should work. If you find error pls post it here.

    No it does not use own grub2. It uses grub2 from host.

    Bump, but I don't need to use truecrypt... I just want a dm-crypt encrypted system booting from a pen-drive. I've found "Privatix", but that is a Debian version. I want a more general approach that will work with any pen-drive, but doesn't dump the /var/log data or other frequently-changing data until the computer is shutdown.

    Re: MultiBootUSB - Install and boot multiple Linux from Pendrive / Flash drive / USB

    Ok do I have grub 2 in ubuntu 11.04 and the explanation above tells you how to download operating systems to the flash drive, but after multiple operating systems are on the flash drive what do I do to open(or start) the specific operating system that I want to use. Am I correct when I say it will load any operating system that is a iso?Thank you.

    1) When you boot from the flash drive, you will be given options which will allow you to load any operating system you have included.

    2) I don't think it will load just any OS iso. Each one needs some customization to be able to work correctly, so only the *supported* ones should work.

    Send your feedback at feedback.multibootusb@gmail.com

    Note: Though this script will not format your USB drive / Pendrive it is advised to take backup of USB data before invoking the script.

    1. What is MultibootUSB

    MultibootUSB is a shell script written by A Ramesh Kumar and Sundar. Main intention of this program is to install multiple Linux distribution in to single USB disk / Flash drive / Pendrive and able to boot from it with less dependency issue. All you need is your favorite distros in iso format and FAT formatted USB disk. Read the rest to find more.

    2. Main Features

    Automatically detects all inserted USB derive / Pendrive and allow you to choose one.

    Uses GRUB 2 as boot manager

    It can boot hybrid iso images directly (if the distro has the support)

    Ubuntu and Ubuntu based distros like Linux mint can be booted from same pendrive.

    It uses Zenity as GUI and no commands need to be typed in the terminal (except to invoke the program/script)

    As of now this script supports 81+ distros


    2. System Requirement

    PC / Laptop which has the option to boot from USB.

    Any latest Linux distribution with GRUB 2 as boot manager. Recommended OS is Ubuntu 9.10 and above.

    One or more Linux ISO image(s) of your choice (Only supported by the script)

    Re: MultiBootUSB - Install and boot multiple Linux from Pendrive / Flash drive / USB

    I have ported MultiBootUSB to windows (but using syslinux). Link to binary and source is here

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mul...files/Windows/

    Any suggestion is welcome. At the moment it is supporting only 22 Distros but will include more soon.
