    You could do it manually..

    Then copy the files to the USB drive.

    If you only have a .iso image you would have to extract the files first. Power IOS or Ultra ISO are good tools for extracting files from a .iso image.

    As "LostED" said, Rufus. I have tested this and it works ok, but do in manually.

    And if you install in UEFI mode you don't even have to mark partition as active.

    Sardu creates a multiboot USB drive, a multiboot DVD ISO or multiboot CD ISO

    h t t p : / / www dot sarducd dot it/

    remove space between h t t p : / / www dot sarducd dot it/ & change dot = .
