Essentially I have a 32GB USB stick, and what I want to create (in an ideal world) is a stick that will contain :
- A permanent install of Ubuntu (not the 'Try Ubuntu', as I want to save drivers, applications, etc. to use each time).
- A few other bootable ISO images (Windows 8 install disk, Antivirus tools, System tools, etc.).
- And finally, have a separate space for general file storage.
-I have seen guides on how to create a proper install of Ubuntu on a USB device, so I can do that, but then I can't have my bootable ISO images on the same stick.
-I know about Your Universal Multiboot Installer (YUMI) Multiboot, which I haven't tried, but I believe I can use to install multiple bootable ISO images on the same USB stick, however this would only provide the 'Try Ubuntu' version of Ubuntu, so I would have to redownload applications, etc. every time I use it.
I'm sort of trying to create an incredibly multi-purpose USB stick for all eventualities.
Are my dreams possible?
I've had a search through google and the forum, and I can find answers to pieces of my puzzle, but not how to do it all together.
Could I partition my USB stick into three or four partitions and
- Do a full install of Ubuntu on one partition
- Use YUMI to put all the bootable ISO images on a second partition
- Use a third partition for general file storage?
Would that work? Can I have two separate bootable partitions on a usb with YUMI on one of them? If so, any tips or advice would be appreciated.
