Windows 7: Multiboot USB

Multiboot USB

What can I use to create a bootable usb drive with win 7 x64, x68 and win 8?

I've tried this YUMI - Multiboot USB Creator (Windows) | USB Pen Drive Linux

SARDU and XBOOT

XBOOT crashed when it was copying the files over.
SARDU won't even copy the iso's over and YUMI gave me an error when i booted saying something about configuration or GUI (sorry can't be more specific it was at work earlier)

All the ones I can find seem to be for linux...

The one which always works for me is Universal USB Installer. While it appears to be Linux-based it has Win7 installer in its dropdown and works flawlessly.

Once it formats the stick you can also extract Win8, Vista and other bit versions of all three into folders for each on the stick, then when you want to install one spill the folder contents in the root for that purpose. The seven install folders must be in the root of the stick to boot. All other installers must be in their folders so they don't interfere.

To unlock all versions in each installer delete the ei.cfg file in Sources folder.
