Hi all

Finally after a long time, I can create an installation USB stick for Ubuntu (the easy one) and Win XP (not so easy and yes I did kill my recovery partition) for my Acer Aspire One and currently have both running again. To keep things interesting though, I was wondering if there is a way to create one USB stick with some sort of a dual boot setup so I can install both OS's.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

It is possible, but I don't think it is worthwhile trying, because USB sticks are cheap and small, and it is much easier to make one for each purpose.

Pendrivelinux claims that YUMI works for a lot of operating systems including Windows, and there are some detailed advice concerning Windows.

Thanks sudodus

Yumi multiboot installer was exactly what I was after ... you can load as many OS's (ISO's) as your usb stick can take. So now I have one stick I can keep in a save place in case something should happen to either of my partitions.
