How to add other distros later

Asked by cianoz on 2010-11-02

Hello
I searched quite long for this but didn't find anything.
Once I have used Unebootin once to prepare a USB key is it possible to add further distributions on the same USB key later, without having to reinstall those that I put the first time?
Thank you

No, I don't think it is possible easily, and it should be very error-prone.
Perhaps you could make many partition, and change which one is bootable (not sure the USB key boot loader manages it).
Or install a multi-boot process in the key.
More easy to have many obsolescent 1GB keys, with a system on each one.

Thank you for the (quick) reply.
It seems that the best alternative is to install a multi boot process, in effect.

Asked by Emil on 4 hours ago

Hi Everyone!
I was thinking about introducing a new feature for UNetbootin. It'd be interesting if there was an option to create multiple-choice booting option. For example, I have a live CD (.iso) with BackTrack, another .iso live CD with Windows XP, and an .iso with HDD-checking utility (Dos). Now, I want to use my pendrive to make it bootable, and after booting I'd like to have an option to choose from these 3 options (3 isos) and can select which of them I want to run.
Is it possible to add this feature in the future releases?

Can you help with this problem?
