Download

You can download it here or on the official website, where there is a version for Linux.

Create

The software does not need to be installed.

Connect your thumb drive (interesting in high capacities like 4 Gb, 8 Gb, 16 Gb, or more).

Run YUMI and click I agree (I agree).



Select the thumb drive you want to use. If it doesn’t appear, check the box Show all drives (Show all drives).



Select the desired distribution:



To the right is the official link for the distribution to be downloaded in the “.iso” image format. If it is different, check the box Show all Isos so that it appears, because if the name differs, it will not appear.



Select the “.iso” file; in this case, we select “Fedora-Live-Workstation-i686-21-5”:



Now, it remains to click Create (Create).



Confirm with Yes. Be careful, as all data will be erased, the best option is to format the thumb drive in fat32, otherwise this will happen.



Wait for the operation to end.



Click in Next (Following).



While you want to add programs at startup, click Yes to continue.



Choose another operating system or utility.



In this example, we will add the Ultimate boot cd; then click on the link and download the “.iso” file.



As before, select the “.iso” file to be added (think about checking the box shows all Isos if not found).



click in create (Create).



Wait, even if the copying system is different, the principle is the same.



click in Next (Following).



Now, let’s put No to complete the flash drive, but if you still have space, you can add as many programs as you like, placing Yes (you will need to restart the operation each time).



click in Finish (Finish).



Now just test your Multiboot pen drive.

Test

For this, it is necessary, in the first place, to have a PC that can initialize the pen drive, because this is not always the case, especially older PCs.

Find the startup key, it is usually the F12, but not always. Check on the first screen, at startup, otherwise try all keys F, the key Esc and the Del.



You can also change it in Bios, but there is no need to change the entire configuration. Better to do it with the start button.

Boot to the flash drive, and this menu should appear:



It is divided into two categories:

“Linux distribution” and System Tools (System Tools) because we put that but, we could have put Windows or other operating systems / programs that need to start (in this tip, in the format “.iso”). Thus, the UBCD will be at the System Tools (System Tools). And, Fedora Linux on Linux distribution.
