YUMI UEFI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) is a great software to create multiboot bootable USB flash drives. It is an excellent and worthy successor to MultibootISO’s. It is a really useful software application because it helps create USB flash drives that can contain multiple operating systems, disc cloning and diagnostic tools as well as several antivirus utilities.
Unlike the MultibootISO’s, YUMI uses a syslinux to boot the extracted distributions on the USB. It only uses grub to reboot the ISO files in the USB’s if needed. What’s great about this software is that it organizes all your necessary files in a single multiboot folder (apart from a few distributions) which makes it easier to continue using the USB for other data. Much like the Universal USB Installer, It is used to add distributions, the only difference being, with this software you can add more than one distribution at a time. It also lets you uninstall the distributions from within the tool itself.
