Hi,

I have a few Rescue and Diagnostic CD disk and i want to transfert it into my usb key.

Is there any way i can make multiple partition in the usb key and install a sort of menu calling wich one will boot...

I try many solution to install a boot manager, but none of them go right into the usb key.

I also try to partition my key with Paragon partition manager for windows , but it seem have difficulty to gave a letter to the partition... always telling me that i have to reboot, and reboot again and nothing works..

First it is possible to do what i want?  and How to do it?

Thank you very much
