If you are using more than one operating system, then you probably have an installation disc or USB drive for each system. AIO Boot proposes a simpler and more efficient solution. This lightweight utility gives you the possibility of installing more than one operating system from a single USB drive. You can install Windows, Linux or other systems, using only one USB drive. Setting everything up is not a challenging task, so even novice users can set up their all-in-one bootable installation drive.
AIO Boot is installed a bit differently than other software applications. When you run the downloaded executable, you will find options for unpacking its components on a USB drive or on your local hard drive, formatting the target drive to FAT32 and you can even re-partition the drive.
Once installed, AIO Boot can be launched directly from a USB drive. It has a compact user interface, but it provides a wide range of useful options. You can install different bootloaders, like Grub2, Clover, Syslinux and others, but the most important feature is the possibility of integrating multiple operating systems.
With a bootloader properly installed, you can proceed to the next tab, on the same interface, and choose what operating system you want to include on your USB drive. You can choose between Windows, Linux and Android, as well as various disc utilities and DOS programs. All you have to do is select a system and a version and specify its local path, if you have an ISO drive. What's more, the software provides you with useful links for acquiring the selected systems or tools.
The software lets you test out your bootable drive, without having to restart your machine. It comes with a built-in emulator, so you can play around with the boot menus directly on your desktop. Also, AIO Boot places a menu editor at your disposal, so you can also customize the menu according to your own tastes.
Figuring out how AIO Boot works shouldn't be a challenge, even for inexperienced users. Its menus and controls are presented in a clear manner and you also get notifications and explanations whenever you click an important option. If you have a high-capacity USB drive and a little patience, you will be able to install multiple operating systems from the same USB drive, but you will also be able to rescue a damaged system from a pre-boot environment, run antivirus scans and much more.
When it comes to installing or rescuing an operating system, AIO Boot places a vast range of possibilities in front of you.
You can integrate multiple operating systems in the same installation USB drive. The software supports several bootloaders. It also comes with an emulator, so you can test your boot menus.
There are no obvious issues to address.
