The best multi-boot tool for any Windows version

WinSetupFromUSB is a Windows program, which prepares multiboot USB flash or fixed disk to install any Windows versions since 2000/XP, boot various Linux and *BSD flavors, as well as many Windows, Linux, DOS based and other utilities. The install Windows from USB project started as a challenge back in 2006 at the msfn.org forum. With the invaluable contribution of several forum members, it was the first method to have regular XP setup run from a USB disk, just like if started from a CD media. WinSetupFromUSB program was made later on to offer graphical interface, and program functionality was slowly extended to allow many other sources in a multiboot USB disk.

The tool fully supports Windows 8.1 as well as UEFI, which, for those who don’t know, is an “evolved” version of BIOS.

This isn’t the single Windows multi-boot tool, but it’s without a doubt one of the best to be use, as it is very easy to set up. Follow the link from below to download it.
