Multi boot USB pen drive software
« on: May 13, 2020, 12:22:43 PM »
Hello there! I'd humbly ask to Spatry whether might be possible to have an epusode about multi boot USB pen drive software; for instance there are a couple of programs tha seemsc quite interesting:

YUMI from pendrivelinux.com
VENTOY from ventoy.net

Sinve there are also other programs, theMaybe an episode may cover 4/5  of these. How about it?

What you ask is difficult, I do not have the free time to research multiple applications and do a comparison between them. There is only one USB Multiboot tool I have used on Arch Linux and it performs very well.
Windows assumes the user is an idiot... Linux DEMANDS Proof!

Ok, I've seen that program, but in the end just tryed ventoy and it's very very easy, a short video about on youtube:

If wanting a GUI, balenaEtcher is also a great choice. Simple UI and rarely have any issues with it. I've used it periodically when not wanting to bother with DD.

I'll second Etcher, I use that program all the time. It may not do multiple imaging like Multiboot, but it's very reliable in my experience.
