Info and screenshots

Here are some screenshots of the program, and descriptions of  the main modes of operation.

The main window, “Distribution” mode – install from local file. This is the default mode of operation.
When you select the iso file, the program will try to autodetect the distribution, based on the filename. You can also use the “ABC” button to try to detect it based on the MD5 sum of the file.

Even if it fails to autodetect, this does not mean the distribution is not supported, so check the list first before giving away 😉live-usb-install-screenshot-1

The main window, “Distribution” mode – download from internet. Select the preferred distribution from the list, and it will be downloaded and installed automatically:live-usb-install-screenshot-2Download progress:live-usb-install-screenshot-3

“Custom syslinux config” – Install from ISO file, and add custom syslinux bootloader configuration parameters – if you know what you are doing:live-usb-install-screenshot-4

“WinGrub ISO Chainloader” – allows you to boot almost any distribution from the usb drive, even unsupported ones, using the “chainloader” mode of GRUB. Not all BIOS-es support this, so your mileage will vary.

You can create multiboot usb drives this way – just repeat the process over and over to add additional distributions:live-usb-install-screenshot-5

“IMG Write” – Image writer mode. Write raw disk img files or “hybrid” iso files to the usb drive. You can install almost any distribution this way, even unsupported ones, as long as they provide img file or hybrid iso. Note – the whole removable drive will be wiped!live-usb-install-screenshot-6

“(Re)Install Syslinux” – allows you to install only the syslinux bootloader and a sample configuration file. Useful if you want to experiment with some unsupported or custom distribution or just learning how to manually create syslinux configurations:live-usb-install-screenshot-7
