    How to Create a YUMI MultiBoot USB Flash Drive for Windows

    How It Works: YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) enables each user to create their own custom Multiboot UFD containing only the distributions they want, in the order by which they are installed.

    This can also be used for memtest86+, matrixium, antiviruses, and many other OS other than window.

    This tutorial will teach you how to create a bootable USB so you can install (most) operating systems without a dvd/cd drive, along with several repair tools.


    Note   Note
    Basic Essentials to create a MultiSystem Bootable USB Drive
    • USB Flash or USB Hard Drive
    • PC that can boot from USB
    • Windows XP/Vista/7 to create the Bootable USB
    • YUMI-0.0.6.7.exe
    • Your selection of ISO Files




    Step 1)
    Download an .ISO version of your installation (available through various sources [Microsoft, Apple, etc., or just from within the tool itself.])
    Step 2)
    Plug in your USB and open up "My Computer". Right click the USB, and select the "Format" button.

    *** After you are finished installing Vista from the USB, make the Vista hard drive (or partition) listed first in the hard drive Boot Priority order list in the BIOS. ***
    Step 11) You will now be prompted by YUMI on whether to continue with the regular start from hard drive, or to install an operating system. scroll down to your choice, and press enter. from here, scroll down to select the operating systems you have installed on the USB, and press enter once again.

    Step 12) Your installation will now continue regularly, as if on a CD.

    Tip   Tip

    • Now that you are finished installing Vista from the USB, make the Vista hard drive (or partition) listed first in the hard drive Boot Priority order list in the BIOS. (Step 10)
    • If you have no use for the old windows files, you can clear up some space by going into
      Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup
      and selecting the drive in which the old windows files are in, and then checking the box that says 'Old Windows Files' and clicking 'Go'



    * * * * * * ENJOY YOUR NEW OPERATING SYSTEM. * * * *
