  1. These are good, and I’ve used UNetbootin. But my go-to is multibootusb. As the name implies, it can install multiple boot images onto a single USB stick. I’ve installed over 20 live distros onto a single 128 GB stick, and several of them with Persistence enabled. I’ve given a friend a 32 GB stick with a half-dozen distros to try out; it was great that he was able to test several distros for compatibility with his semi-ancient hardware, and install one, all without having to play tag.
