YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer), is the successor to our MultibootISOs. It can be used to create a Multiboot Bootable USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning – backup, penetration testing, diagnostic tools, and much more. YUMI makes it easy for anyone to create their very own custom All-In-One Multi use diagnostic USB PC Repair Toolkit.
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 back to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.
Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Portable Multiboot USB Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes.
YUMI was originally intended to be used to store and run various "LIVE Linux" Operating Systems and tools from USB. Using YUMI to install Linux from USB to a Hard Drive works on many but not all distributions. (I'm working to address this). If you find a distribution where the install does not work, please let me know.

Ophcrack is an open source Windows password recovery utility that uses rainbow tables to find passwords. It can be run from Windows, Linux or Live CD. The following tutorial explains how to install and boot Ophcrack from a portable USB device. Since the Live CD version (running from a SLAX now SliTaz core) is already available, creating USB Ophcrack is similar to converting any other Live Linux CD to USB and now they even offer their own tazusb.exe installer.
This tutorial explains how to access the Boot Menu on a newer Phoenix-Award system to enable USB boot from a flash memory stick. The system used for this demonstration sports a MSI K8N Neo4 (MS-7125) motherboard. To date, this system has easily been able to boot from any properly setup flash drive or USB hard drive we have thrown at it.
