Add more ISO's to Ultimate Boot CD

#1 Post by yoe » Tue Nov 03, 2009 11:20 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a solution for a problem I have. I'm a computer technician, and being one I go around installing CD's all the time. I have a pack of CD's with me, I usually carry discs like:

Windows XP - Windows 2000 - Windows Vista (32/64 bit) - Windows Seven (32/64 bit) - Slax live linux - Ultimate Boot CD - Mac OSX 10.4 - Mac OSX 10.5 - Mac OSX 10.6

and I'd really love to STOP carrying these discs and instead put them all on my 500GB external USB hard drive.

I already have them on the drive as ISOs (for backup) but what I really want to do is just BOOT from the usb drive, and then get a menu that asks me which iso I want to boot from, I choose it and - TADAM! the computer boots from that ISO.

I already know there is no program that does this, but at this point I will PAY GOOD MONEY if somebody can do this for me. I thought maybe one way would be to create a separate partition on the drive for every ISO and then use a boot manager to choose which one to boot from.

Can I use UBCD to do this? can I just add ISO's of all the discs I use to the list of UBCD programs?

If it's not possible through a hard drive, I can also consider a solution that involves an SD Card reader and multiple micro SD cards (if that would be fast enough)

If anybody wants to take on this project please e-mail me a quote to INFO <AT> SPEEDGEEKNY <DOT> COM Like I said, I'll be happy to pay somebody to do it for me.

Thank you!

You can adapt the iso's to use the Firadisk driver

Then you can use grub4dos iso booting to load those iso's.

I didn't try it myself, so you have to try it out yourself.
