    hi
    Face to face with booting several iso images on a USB since months (instead of using one key for banking, another for rescue task etc), i discovered a powerful tool via a blog http://en.positon.org/post/The-ultimate-live-USB-MultiBoot-solution:-Easy2Boot
    Never totally satisfied with Lili or Multibootusb and co (https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=318287), Easy2Boot appears as a complete solution for my need.

    https://sites.google.com/a/rmprepus...ultiboot-drive-that-is-easy-to-maintain/e2bv1

    Devs blog http://www.rmprepusb.blogspot.com

    More over, this tool is useful even for average uers, as for instance, they just need to add several AV iso in the ANTIVIRUS folder to scan their system with various engines.
    RMPrepUSB is another interesting tool for some format/partition or backup tasks.

    Hope this helps.

    Nice find. Great documentation. Will give it a try. This might just be the SARDU replacement I've been looking for.

    I just tried this and it seemed to work well. However the menu (re)generation is slow and it seems to occur everytime you boot the drive (I booted twice).

    You can cache the menu using FASTLOAD - see the documentation or read the \_ISO\FASTLOAD_Read_Me.txt file.
    If you add new ISOs then you need to refresh the cache using the extra menu entry that will automatically be added.
    Version 1.06 should also be faster than previous versions.
    My NTFS USB HDD has over 40 main menu payload files and takes 6 seconds to boot to the menu (without using FASTLOAD).
