    I'm not too familiar with Linux bootloaders. All I know is for some ISOs I add to my YUMI multiboot USB, some fail to load and say "Error 60: File for drive emulation must be in one contiguous disk area"

    It's a USB so I don't know why the file being split up would be a problem.

    How do I fix this problem? Before I thought it was just with unlisted ISOs, but it happened with UBCD today, which is supported by YUMI.

    if the problem is that your ISOs are not contiguous, then try something like WinContig or another defragger to make them contiguous. If your USB drive is very full, then move large files (ISOs?) out of it, defrag freespace (with Defraggler or similar) so that your ISOs can fit in it contiguously, then move the large files back, and last double check that they now are contiguous.

    That worked, but Manjaro still didn't boot. It got stuck in a loop saying it couldn't mount dev1/hd0 or something like that. I ended up downloading Virtualbox and trying it from that. I didn't care for it.
