Do you reinstall the system often? Do you sometimes find that you can’t find a Windows installer or Linux CD? Nothing’s simpler – if you have a large enough size, you can place all the installations of your systems on it. In reinstallation, you can install any system from a single USB drive.
We’ll do everything with a simple program called WinSetupFromUSB. It’s a small tool that can make a bootable flash drive based on a Windows Installer, Linux, or PE/PE2 ISO image. With this difference, we can place multiple installers on one USB drive and choose the one we want to install after booting from the USB drive.
How do I create a Windows and Linux installer on the same USB drive?
WinSetupFromUSB works with Windows 2000 /XP/2003, Vista/7/8/Server 2008/2012 systems with various Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, CentOS, or others) with everything that supports CD grub4dos emulation. Most importantly, all these images can be combined into one multi-adapter on a USB drive or USB drive.
Step 2: The program’s work is straightforward – after launching the application, a simple window will be displayed. At the top, we have to indicate one of the connected USB flash drives or drives on which we want to create a bootable multi-adapter.
Step 3: Then, in the “Add to USB Drive” section, we have fields responsible for individual systems. If we want to add one of them to our Pendrive installer, it is enough to select the selected system type in the list and then specify the ISO file. You can get the ISO files of the different OS from online resources:
You can download macOS ISO and Window ISO files from our partner website: TechRechard
We repeat this process for each system we want to add.
Step 4: Then we start creating a bootable pen drive with a GO button and wait for the process to finish.
Eventually, we can restart the computer with Pendrive connected. If we have installed a boot from a USB drive, a selection screen will appear to indicate which installer we want to run. We then monitor the installation process of each system.
