Multiboot USB Creator that can use any liveCD/image?


In the past I've used the Multisystem multiboot USB creator. The major limitation of it to me seemed to be that you could only add boot images which were in their predefined list. Furthermore, this seems to be the usual case among multiboot USB creators. Is there a multiboot USB creator out there that will let you take any bootable image and add it to the list? One that isn't restricted based on the programs list? Thank you much!

Not all distros are made the same. Each one needs to have special work done in order to use such tools. You can try other ones but I suspect it will more likely fail than work.

Great thanks for the information. Could you explain why they aren't able to make a general one? What about the images makes it so it needs special work to run this way? Why can't you the program just give a list of images then start up on that image as though it had been booted? Thank you again!
