Why doing it yourself when manjaro-system can do it for you?

1st of all: sorry for a typo in the link... here the fixed one.

Looks like a windows app?
Easy2Boot is a set of files to be installed in the root of a blank VFAT partition created on an usb drive.
This usb drive must be bootable via grub4dos
Indeed the original tutorial explains us how to install grub4dos from windows (my bad...)

Let me explain you how I performed:

Step1: Prepare the pendrive
create a single partition on an usb drive (keep in mind that partition table must be a MBR one)
create a VFAT file system on this partition
mount this partition (for instance mount /dev/sdc1 /run/media/pendrive)

Step2: Copy Easy2Boot files in the root of the pendrive
download Easy2Boot v1 BETA26 v6.
unzip the files and copy them in the root of the pendrive (for instance /run/media/pendrive)

Step3: Install Grub4Dos
download Grub4Dos
unzip the files somewhere ON YOUR COMPUTER (for instance ~/working/grub2dos)
run the following command from the working directory:
Code: [Select]
sudo ./bootlace.com --time-out=0 /dev/sdX
don't forget to replace sdX by the correct id (for instance sdc)

Step4: copy some iso files
copy some iso files in the "_ISO\AUTO" folder placed at the root of your pendrive

Boot the pendrive (using VirtualBox could be useful)
Choose the 2nd entry in the main menu (AUTO)
A autogenerated menu is displayed: there is one entry per iso file
Why doing it yourself when manjaro-system can do it for you?

Thanks a lot for sharing, I tried it and this works very well, currently I can add very quickly (copy paste) new isos to the menu, I have Voyager, Chakra, Cinnarch and Manjaro at the same time :)

No need of Windows.

A good replacement for multisystem.  :)

This is a windows app,
Yes but I did not use it...
In my post above, I explained how to install Grub4Dos from a linux system:
Code: [Select]
sudo ./bootlace.com --time-out=0 /dev/sdX
Please, trust me.
Type "Easy2Boot" in a web search tool and you will find this link

Edit: @Esclapion: I've just posted the link related to the english version  :P
