I have been trying to make a multiboot USB with YUMI and Multiboot USB software. Any ideas why they work fine with one or two distros but some work and some don't if there is five or six.It will be different distros when I try different drives. Before you ask they are 16GBs so I don't think space is the problem. Any suggestions?

You could always try a different tool, maybe you'll have better luck? A list of tools can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tools_to_create_Live_USB_systems

 

Note that some do not support multi-booting.

I had the same problem, tried a few, and found this one to be by the best, easiest, etc.

+1! :thumbup2:

 

The same one that I've been using for 2-3 years for Linux installs & multi-purpose. Have never had an issue with it, boots nearly anything, media for backup creation/rescue, partition software, AV scan media. even Windows installers included for 7 & 8. Just click on the 'Supported Distros' tab & see.

EDIT: The same developer creates YUMI, but I've never tried it. The thing about these are if one wants to use the Persistence option, only 4GiB FAT32 space is allowed for this. Meaning one can select only Level 1 updates if using regularly, maybe an extra browser & that's it. This is not the developer's restriction, rather an imposed one by the ones whom created this standard of Linux usage. If one wants to carry a pocket of distros to test & install on other's computers, this may be a good tool to use. Otherwise, persistence files are a nuisance I can live without.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
