Free USB flash drive creator

YUMI is a free platform for creating bootable USB drives that can hold multiple software programs. It stands for "Your Universal Multiboot Installationer." This freeware is primarily focused on Linux operating systems but it can also format backup utilities, antivirus programs, disc cloning, Windows applications, and many other things. Pen Drive Linux, the pioneers in bootable flash drives, developed this program and released it.

What is YUMI software?

Technology companies are changing the way they design their computers and laptops to avoid discs and DVDs. This allows them to keep up with the current trend and save space and weight. However, tech companies still offer operating system packages on CD disks. Modern computers can be saved by the YUMI program, which installs operating systems and software on them.

YUMI allows you to upload multiple ISO files to a portable USB key. This freeware program allows people to transform their memory sticks into complete tools that allow them to install programs on their computers and laptops. This software was created by Pen Drive Linux before they released the Universal USB Installer, and MultiBootISO utilities.

This MultiBootISO app is different from the one Pen Drive Linux previously offered. It uses the syslinux bootsloader instead of the grub to boot ISO files via USB ports. If the syslinux tool doesn't work properly, it will revert to using grub to extract items from the USB. The files are then stored in a single multiboot directory.

How do you use YUMI

After you have downloaded YUMI, proceed with the setup process. During installation, you will receive the license agreement. To continue installing it, you must read and agree to the terms. Plug your USB drive into your computer or laptop. After accepting the license agreement, you will then be prompted to choose the flash drive and distribution method from drop-down menus.

You can add additional distribution items to this program each time you use it. Select the name of the pen drive from the drop-down menu. The "Show All Drives” option will display a large list of drives. After selecting the correct USB port, you will be able to access the second drop-down menu that contains a large number of ISO files.

Choose the ISO image you want from the extensive list: Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc. Once you have found and clicked on the downloaded ISO, the third step will be available. Click on "Browse" in "Step 3 to open the folder associated with the ISO determined from "Step 2". Click on the file, then click "Open."

After selecting the file, you can review the selections and then click "Create." The bottom of the interface contains links to the Home Page, FAQ and Recommended Flash Drives. After verifying that the information is correct and pressing Yes or No, a warning message will appear to inform you of the irreversible steps being taken.

This notification reminds you to backup your information in the event that items are lost, overwritten or damaged. Verify that the software is capable of performing the listed actions. If you select Yes, a loading bar will be displayed in the next window to show the progress of your project. The ISO size will determine how long it takes to format the file.

How can I install multiple operating systems on one USB?

Once the upload is complete click the "Next" button. A pop-up screen will appear asking if you'd like to add additional ISO files to the USB stick. You can click Yes to return to the original page and submit the next item to the USB drive.

Alternative USB installers

Etcher, Rufus and WinToFlash, free programs that create bootable USB keys, are available alongside this software. Rufus, WinToFlash and YUMI all have simple user interfaces that guide users through the formatting process. Etcher's UI is more modern than the other apps.

Etcher and Rufus may be open-source, but WinToFlash or YUMI aren't. People can download the original Etcher and Rufus versions to ensure they are using secure software. WinToFlash, and this program, are still safe to use.

All-in-one USB Tool

YUMI is a free and safe software that formats items onto portable USB drives. This lightweight app can store multiple operating systems or platforms on a single flash drive. It's designed for Linux systems but can still be used with Windows programs.

The Pen Drive Linux team will ask users to notify Pen Drive Linux if they are using incompatible distributions. The developers are open to new updates and projects. Visit their official website for the most recent software update.
