Multiple boot from usb (how to do it if possible at all)

What I want to do is that;

openSuse live CD
gParted live
and arch linux

installed in a usb. I would probably need a grub for it too :slight_smile:

Wow!

I am not sure this is possible. I am not an expert though…

It can be done - check out syslinux (which is a boot loader that works
with systems like this) or usblinux (which ISTR uses a version of
syslinux).

It’s not a trivial thing to do, but in theory should be entirely possible

  • though the “LiveCD” will likely need to be converted - you probably
    would be better off building a custom image with Studio as a starting
    point for that.
