From the way the message read, if you have Windows and a Linux program, you have to give sources the sourceswim name to boot into linux. To boot into Windows you have to name it back to sources.

I'm experiencing the same problem when trying to install Windows 7/8. I can get into boot different ISO's I have, but when I try to use the Windows 7/8 installer I got stuck on the page where it try to find the HDD. Is anyone able to do a clean install of Windows 7/8 using YUMI?

.. well gabrielcab, I finally managed to make it work .. first, format fat32 usb stick (mine 8gb) now prepare iso's, one win7, one xp, hirens .. MAKE SURE there's no spaces between letters, best use "win7x64", "win7x86", "winxpsp3", "hirens106", do another format from yumi, add one win7/8, add one winxp, add one hirens .. I say "one" because I'm not sure yet why yumi gives only one win7/8-winxp-hirens insert option, sure you can use unlisted iso, but for me that was dead end (install error mentioned before) .. I've notice that if you want some other hirens version instead 15.x, just go for unlisted iso, it works for 9.x, 10.x .. dont use win7/8/xp like unlisted iso!

Yes, I install using this all the time. It sounds like a bad ISO/bad ISO download/bad write to the USB. Try it again.

Hey. How were you able to add more than one instance of Windows 7? You say you used the installer option but that seems to disappear after the one add. I'd like to add Windows 8 as well but it seems like it can only be one at a time?

I did not add more than one win7/xp instance -

"I say one because I'm not sure yet why yumi gives only one win7/8-winxp-hirens insert option"

.. only hirens works as unlisted!

Ok I guess when I saw you list both 32 and 64 bit Windows 7 I thought you had more than one install. I think I may just add Windows 8 and then use WinNToBootic to have a multi Windows install USB drive
