Glad that you found the answers to all your queries here in this thread and thanks for your appreciation.
This thread meandered through various stages before culminating in the multiboot ISO pendrive with inputs and comments from many heads here.
First, it was booting from ISOs stored in the HDD using EasyBCD.
Bill2 then provoked me for good ...*chuckles*

It then went on to writing a bootable ISO into a pendrive using UltraISO.
Out came the comment that there are only cases that can hold a maximum of six pendrives.
(hmmm... each bootable ISO will require a pendrive)
Then came the multiboot ISO pendrive that can boot from as many ISOs as you can put or fit into the pendrive. The "breakthrough" here came from Dave76. I wonder whether even Dave76 knows what it was. Here it is.

Yes, though I had this program on my comp for over six months, the noob I was or still am, I had assumed that it will work only with the ISOs listed by the software author.*chuckles again*
That one line and a great leap for me. ( I thankfully remember Neil Armstrong. )
So then, here you have all that you need ( a three-in-one) as per your convenience and need, to boot from ISOs without writing them to any optical media.
