YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Integrator), is the successor to our MultibootISOs. It can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. Contrary to MultiBootISOs which used grub to boot ISO files directly from USB, YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.
Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot or yumi folder (depending on version), making for a nicely organized Multiboot USB Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes.
Important Note: YUMI was intended to be used to try to run various “LIVE Linux” Operating Systems from USB. Installing Linux from the YUMI created USB Drive to a Hard Drive is not officially supported. If the installer portion of any Live Linux distro does work, consider it a bonus.
Creating a YUMI Multiboot MultiSystem Bootable USB Flash Drive
YUMI works much like Universal USB Installer, except it can be used to install more than one distribution to run Live from your USB. Distributions can also be uninstalled using the same tool!

YUMI-188.8.131.52.exe – December 28, 2015 – Changelog
Add GRUB (partition 4) option) <- try on unsupported Linux ISO files. Update to support Windows 10 Installer (untested), Xioapan, Bitdefender Rescue CD, and the newer DBan.
PLEASE READ: Syslinux 6+ is used in >YUMI 184.108.40.206. Distributions installed with a previous YUMI version are not compatible. You must start with a freshly formatted USB. If you still experience missing com32/chain32 errors with freshly formatted USB using the latest YUMI revision, please report them.

Note: I plan to rewrite YUMI for Linux as I find time, so the Linux YUMI tool will dramatically change once it is finished.
