Melita, I use YUMI to create my multi-boot flash drives. (I think I mentioned that somewhere already). You can followed the instructions in this article. Where I deviate from the article is I download ISO myself and then browse to it - I don't download ISO in YUMI.

Thank you Jojo Yee.

Yes joe, you did and I downloaded it that day itself and have been using it. I have downloaded some more Linux iso files to check out another Distro for my other computer (I am already using Q4OS). Unfortunately YUMI does not have some of them in its list of capable Distros [(Makulu-Debian/Ubuntu), (Neptune-Debian),(Chalet-Debian/Ubuntu)]. Yumi did Manjaro, which is in it's list but it cannot do the others.

I checked the Internet and found a load of similar multi boot software, but wanted to check here to see whether any of those are recommended at Gizmo's.

I use Rufus also, but although it has no restrictions like Yumi, it has no multi boot capability.

Regards

Melita, I think I read somewhere that not all Linux distros have live CDs. However, here's what you could try. Scroll down to the end of the list of distros in YUMI and you'd see 4 options.

Try adding the unlisted distro using each of those options in turn. You could get lucky and one of them may work.

[Edit]
Just keep in mind that YUMI's intended purpose if for trying distros. Although it may work, YUMI isn't really for installing distros.

Joe, thank you for helping. I finally decided on ChaletOS.

How stupid of me not to see the end of that list! :mad: Yes, it worked except for ChaletOS, for which I had to use Rufus. Rufus wipes out everything else in the USB Drive but it couldn't be helped.

Rufus allows for installation as well. I installed ChaletOS using Rufus.

Don't be so hard on yourself. We all miss things sometimes.

Yes. Rufus is a great program but it wasn't designed to create multiboot flash drives. I am glad you finally found a distro you like though. :)
