Creating Multi bootable Windows or Software Installer Usb Pen drive Guide
Question what people asked me:
- How To Make Windows XP And Windows 7 Installation Combine Bootable Pendrive?
- How To Make Multi Bootable Windows 8, Hirens Boot & Other Bootable Software Single USB Drive?
USB is a great thing for installing Windows or to use utility software’s because it will make things quicker than DVD or CD Reader (DVD-RW) and as a professional, you can make a multi-bootable Pendrive which can contain all of your bootable OS and software in the single pen drive.
By creating a multi-bootable Pendrive you can save your other pen drive for some other stuffs and you’ll just need a single Pendrive to use for all the multiple booting or installation.
We are using software named Yumi because it will allow you contain verity of software in your single USB device. Yumi will give you a selection menu to choose what software or OS you want to store in your drive.
So, the first thing you’ll need is to download this software by the given link below.

So Let’s See
Step 1 – Open Yumi
The best thing about this software is, it doesn’t need to get install in your computer to run so you can open it by just double clicking on it and it will ready to perform.
Step 2 – Selecting USB Drive
Select your Pendrive in the ‘Select the drive letter of your usb’ menu. If you didn’t find your drive then you can tick the “show all drives” and that will show you all attached drive on your computer and after that, you can select your drive to create it for the multiple booting.
Step 3 – Formatting
Take a backup of all your data from the Pendrive because we will need to format it for the first time before transferring any bootable files on it.
Its only one-time formatting and after that, you can add whatever software as much as your Pendrive storage supports.
Just Tick on ‘Format’ option on the right side and that will automatically erase your pendrive before making your drive bootable.
Step 4 – First Software/OS Selection
Now open the selection menu and select what type of Software/OS you want to make bootable in your pendrive. I’m selecting windows 7 just for an example.
After that browse for the Software/OS .iso file on your computer and open it in yumi just like below
Step 5 – Add First Boot
Click on “Create” to move on to the next step. Now the yumi will ask you to erase all the data so, click on yes to format all the data and after that just watch until the file transfer completes.
Step 6 – First Boot Finalization
After step 5, now your file transformation gets completed and the software is asking you to click on next so, click on it.
By clicking on next, it will ask you to add more iso, click on yes to add more.
Step 7 – Adding Second Software/OS
By clicking on yes, this software will take to the main menu again and now you’ll have to repeat the steps what I shows you above beside “Step 3 – Formatting” because this time you don’t need to format your drive again if you do then you will lose your first bootable data what you’ve created in it.
Now I’m selecting “Hirens boot cd” for my second boot software for an example. After selecting the file you’ll just need to click on create to make it your second bootable software on your USB.
Now you can add as many bootable images as your pendrive can store:
After creating your pendrive bootable, change the boot setting in bios for your USB or quick boot your pendrive from the boot menu and you will see the pendrive boot screen looks like the screenshot below.
