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.
