multibootstick v0.2

I've created a grub configuration for USB Sticks that can boot several .iso files on a single USB Device

The following .iso files are included in the download:

  • Ubuntu 14.04.3 desktop amd64
  • Debian Jessie 8.20 netinst amd64
  • NetbootCD 6.1
  • SystemRescure CD x86
  • Tails 1.7
  • Clonezilla 2.4.2-61 amd64
  • Elementary OS 0.3.1 amd64


Please use this Torrent to downlaod the 3.9G file.

Alternatively you can download the files here

You need an USB stick with at least 4GB Space, 8GB are recommended.

  • Partition and format the whole Stick to a single FAT32 Partition with activated boot flag. (gparted or fdsik will do the trick)
  • Unzip the multiboot files to the stick and install grub to the usbstick:

mount /dev/sdX1 /mnt 
tar xfvz /path/to/file/multibootstick_v0.2.tar.gz -C /mnt
grub-install --target=i386-pc --recheck --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sdX


You are welcome to customize this System with your own desired .iso files. Simply upload your favourite .iso file to the /boot directory of the stick and add the approprite configuration to the /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

The Arch Wiki has a comprehensive guide on how to configure the grub.cfg for several Linux distros.
