Windows 7: YUMI MultiBoot...more than one Windows 7 ISO possible?

YUMI MultiBoot...more than one Windows 7 ISO possible?

G'day,

I've been playing around alot with some Unices, and in the process have built myself a little 16GB bootable USB drive using YUMI, that holds a collection of tools and ISO's such as :

- MemTest86+
- Partition Wizard 7
- Bitdefender Rescue Disk
- Ubuntu 12
- Mint 12
- Debian
- Zorin
- Windows 7 Ultimate x64

As far as I can tell, I can only add one Windows 7 ISO. The problem is I have two other laptops floating around : one runs Windows 7 Home Premium x86, the other runs Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

Does anyone know if it is possible to add these additional Windows 7 ISO's to my YUMI existing multiboot USB?

My goal is to have one USB drive, from which I can attend to any PC in the house.

Thanks,
Golden

you can quite easily make yourself an all-in-one windows installer which includes all flavours of win 7 in one iso.

there are several ways, but this method from SIW2 means that you don't have to download the mutli-gig WAIK tool.

Ahhhh....I remember stumbling across this once - it looked complicated. I'll give it a crack and see what happens.

I wonder if I could merge it with my Linux/other tools.......

Thanks mickey.

Creating the all-in-one Windows 7 USB disk was very easy and didn't take long at all. I followed the guide found here in tutorials. It creates a .iso file first, so that's what you'd need. It's a single .iso file, but it gives you choices for every version of Windows for both platforms.

I wonder if you could do the same for Windows Vista (and Windows 8 when it comes out).

BTW, love the use of "unices", Golden.

Here's the guide I followed to create an all-in-one DVD .iso file. Once complete (and I tested in a VM), I used the Microsoft USB/DVD tool to "burn" the .iso to a flash drive.

Anytime! It's been very convenient for me. Be aware, that some 4 GB USB flash drives can't fit the entire image. I have a Patriot and a Sandisk 4 GB drive that won't work. I had to use one of my 8 GB drives.

Yes. Windows Vista came with all editions on a single DVD, well almost x64 and x86 were on different discs. Windows 7 just continues what was started with Windows Vista. Windows 8 continues as well.
