LiLi USB Creator v2.9.0 Updated

Midas on 11 Nov 2014

Linux Live USB Creator allows you to create a bootable drive with any of a long list of distributions. The program is faster than similar tools and can use almost any bootable ISO (excluding Windows XP or Mac OS X). Additionally, the program supports the Linux "Persistence" feature, which works like a Live distribution while saving your data and settings. Persistence enables you to keep your settings between sessions, while reduces the wear on USB flash media by keeping writes to a minimum.

Note: Although this program works with a portable version of VirtualBox (available from the download page) to let users test an OS without rebooting, this has not been tested as portable.

yeah i had a 4gb pen but that program completly damaged it. i couldnt even format with any low level formater

Works great on my 8gb drive. Only problem is that persistence doesn't work with Virtual Box on W7/Vista. U can have 1 or the other but not both. Bummer. Should be OK on XP machines though.

from pfc: "UNetbootin allows you to create bootable operating systems to a USB drive without burning a CD."

from the website: "UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD."

The first sentence is unclear if one could install one or two operating systems on a single USB stick, which is untrue if I remember correctly.

abc: thanks for the response -- you're right that it doesn't allow for installation of multiple distributions as some of these tools do and I've modifed the entry. However, I didn't take directly from their website because this program will also work with non-Linux ISOs.

YUMI v2.0.1.2 Updated

Checker on 30 Oct 2014
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by webfork

YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) can be used to create a multi-boot USB flash drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes. YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.

YUMI works much like Universal USB Installer, except it can be used to install more than one distribution to run from your USB. Distributions can also be uninstalled.

Note: YUMI v2.x can't remove distributions previously installed with Legacy YUMI! Although no longer supported, you can still Download Legacy YUMI.

I've been using this instead of Unetbootin and LinuxLive USB Creator (LiLi) for the last 6 months or so. Not as pretty at LiLi but its fantastic being able to easily add multiple Linux distros and even Windows Installs onto a single flash drive.

Midas on 2013-11-06 12:56

BEWARE: just in case you haven't noticed, v1.9.9.0 is in fact v2 Beta, and not fully compatible with previous versions (latest v1 is v0.1.1.0, still available for download from YUMI's webpage)...
