I personally use YUMI for that. YUMI - Multiboot USB Creator (Windows) | USB Pen Drive Linux

Oh nice thank you.
But I think it is only for Linux. Is there similiar one for Win 7?

I see there is windows in backets but they say include "distributions", arent those Linux distributions?

Not really. You can boot windows ISOs with it. Mine has a Windows Repair ISO and a Macrium WinPE ISO along with many other utilities including Hirens (Note at the moment there is a thread here which is talking about the latest Hirens being infected). If you use it for the windows repair disk follow the instructions for a Windows 7 Installation disk otherwise it will complain about wanting to repair the boot sector. The Macrium WinPE ISO can be just loaded as "Other ISO".

I know, last time I used Hiren was in version 6!!

-Can I add Gparted to YUMI?
-If I want to use Macrium, must I use WinPE ISO(of Macrium)?
-How do I convert a program to be bootable, so I will be able to put it on YUMI?


I know not all the ISO files will be bootable before windows, or am I wrong?

I use Xboot, which is akin to YUMI, and it boots every .iso file I've thrown at it, including of course Macrium but also recently Puppy Linux, so I've no doubt it will do GParted (included in puppy btw).

No you could add the Linux ISO I think. There is a Wizard with YUMI that will allow you to download and install many tools. If Gparted is not one of them you just need a bootable ISO and install it as "Other ISO"

Thanks maxseven I will look into it.

Kado, if the program I want to include is not included with the wizard how do I make it ISO bootable?

With most of these utilities they come as a bootable ISO.

Would you please give a link.
My search results (both on Seven and Google) show the use of Hirens to fix malware,
and I would like to know what I am getting into if I download it now.

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,
