Multisystem- To generate multiple LiveUSBs with an usb stick

Post by oops66 »

Hello,
FI: MultiBoot v3 is a nice tool to generate multiple LiveUSBs with only an usb stick (.iso and/or .img files --> FAT32)
(Under Linux-Ubuntu + Grub2 or Virtual Machines (Virtual Box, ...) or LiveCd ( to generate LiveUSB Windows, Linux, and so ....))

Create your MultiBoot LiveUSB so extremely simple,
You just have to Drag & Drop your files. Iso
on a window and that's all.

MultiBoot will help you achieve LiveUSB to do everything,
ideal for exploring different Linux distributions without installing on your PC
and it seamlessly;
or to install the Linux distribution of your choice on your PC
much faster than via a LiveCD with the speed of USB2 ports.
Indispensable on the range of current netbooks that do not have a CD drive
...
Available in French, English, Spanish - Translators Wanted

(In French:)

I have been searching for such a tool awhile,
I hope there is good support for English language.
I will give it a try ...

is also very easy, however it supports only 1 bootable image on an USB stick.

You can first try it via a Virtual Machine (Virtual Box, VmWare, MobaLiveCD ...) and Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala & MultiBoot-v3
http://liveusb.info/dotclear/index.php? ... ualisation

Code: Select all

sudo software-properties-gtk -e universe
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gtkdialog zenity xdotool wmctrl fuseiso qemu imagemagick syslinux grub-pc cryptsetup

Code: Select all

cd /tmp
wget http://liveusb.info/MultiBoot-v3/MultiBoot-v3.tar.bz2
tar xjf MultiBoot-v3.tar.bz2
rm MultiBoot-v3.tar.bz2
cd MultiBoot-v3
sudo ./install.sh
The English language support is not done yet, but the installation is pretty simple from Ubuntu 9.10 ( and you have the Google Translation )

Hello,
No yet, but I think in the near future some distributions (LiveCDs) will integrate MultibootV3 ( USB Multi-Boot maker ) , I will try to inform you here.

FI: You can now install Multiboot V3 in Ubuntu (hardy/intrepid/Jaunty/Karmic/Lucid) via the Method N°1 ( a simple script)
You also can now install Multiboot V3 in Archlinux.
http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=343634&p=1

Ubuntu - Method 1 (recommended)
Via the handing-download the script:
http://liveusb.info/MultiBoot-v3/instal ... sh.tar.bz2
unzip and run: install-depot-multiboot.sh

Hello,
FI: A new Linux LiveCD: Multibootv3+Slitazv3.0 Distribution is released (especially for Windows users but also for an USBstick nomad use)
Multibootv3 is a stable version, Slitas v3.0 is a light and stable Linux distrib, but the iso build is an alpha version, and should decrease in size in a next future, actually the .iso is 115MB

Re: MultiBootv3- To generate multiple LiveUSBs with an usb s

Some recent Linux installation and live-cds are hybrid iso. These are kinds which can be copied directly to usb or burned to cd.

The package syslinux in Ubuntu/Debian contains the isohybrid command which can convert (some) regular iso into a hybrid type. I guess this is similar to linuxliveusb mentioned above, but if you're stuck using a rescue cd and can't find an easy gui tool...

To create hybrid:
isohybrid test.iso

To copy result to usb key:
cat test.iso > /dev/sdX
