Today I thought about if it would be possible just to copy ISO-Images to an usb-stick and run them.
I googled a bit and found: MultiBootISOs.exe.

This tool (normally) only allows booting of a predefined list. BUT if you install this nice peace of software on an usb-stick and edit the "menu.lst" file in the root directory of the stick you may boot any iso you like :).

Just your own ISO on to the usb-stick. Give it a name without spaces!
for ex: "Memtest86+-4.10.iso"

Then open the "menu.lst". You may add your own ISO at the end of the file or remove all existing
Code:
title Memtest86+ 4.10
find --set-root /Memtest86+-4.10.iso
map /Memtest86+-4.10.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)


If you get following error booting your image:
Code:
Error 60: File for drive emulation must be in one contiguous disk area

You will need to defragmentate your iso with Contig(Command Line) or Wincontig(GUI)

Enjoy :)
