Im looking to makje a USB that has the following

1. Windows 7 x64 install
2. Windows 7 32Bit Install
3. Windows XP Install
4. Hirens Boot CD 9.9

All bootable and installable or runable from the USB (Runable meaning starts an install) not run the OS from the USB of course.


Was wondering if you had ever come across an answer for this. I am looking for something along the same lines
