Create multi boot live Linux on a USB disk...
Multi Boot USB / MultiBoot USB / MultiBootUSB is a software / installer which allows user to install multiple Live Linux Distros in to a single USB drive / Pendrive / Flash drive and able to boot from it. USB can be tested without reboot using inbuilt QEMU.
Startup Manager is a program that provides you the possibility to manage the Windows startup procedure. It offers you the possibility to control which programs automatically start up and more.

Install OS X Leopard on some unsupported Macs.
LeopardAssist assists in the process of install OS X Leopard on machines that did not meet the minimum system requirement of an 867MHz or faster processor. It achieves this by temporarily writing a script into the NVRAM of your G4-based Mac. Executed at startup, this script will temporarily force the system to report that a faster processor is installed, allowing the Leopard installer to successfully complete its minimum system requirements check. This allows Leopard to be installed from unmodified installation media or another bootable device. LeopardAssist handles the interaction with Open Firmware, specifying the target processor speed, the number of physical processors in the system, the desired boot device and any additional startup flags to simplify the installation and configuration process.
A web based GUI for managing PXE boot and optionally managing DHCP service. Also supports creating and serving Kickstart and preseed scripts. This provides a client install in one click. This is a generic framework created to work with anything that's PXE bootable. Adding new hosts can be done via "PXE enrollment" where the client PXE boots to enroll into OneClickKick. Easily integrated with existing naming sources such as NIS and LDAP for central lookup of host and mac address information. OneClickKIck can also be integrated with FreeIPA (www.freeipa.org) to allow adding and modifying hosts directly in IPA.
A KDE Control Module for configuring the GRUB2 bootloader.
Smoothly integrated in KDE System Settings, it is the central place for managing your GRUB2 configuration.
Linux is an excellent environment for deploying diskless thin clients. Whether you are installing a 2nd workstation at home, 50 workstations in a CyberCafe or 500 workstations in a major university or corporation, the LTSP can help you be successful.
Portable System for installing many Linux Distros on to a Pen drive
This project provides a Live DVD for the multibootusb program, for installing multiple Linux Distros on to a single Pen drive and able to boot from it. This makes the program ready to use on the go on any system without installing it. It is faster to start this system through VirtualBox, then the DVD Drive. This .iso file can also be written on to a small dedicated pen drive ( ~ 1 GB ) through this DVD's multibootusb program and further used for writing linux images on to other pen drives ( not on the same ! ) thereby making everything portable. Note: Click "+ Other Locations" on the file manager for opening local disks, while browsing for images to write through this dvd's multibootusb program. Also note that the pen drive needs to be in fat32 format for proper booting. if in other formats, for eg. ntfs, you can use the GParted program that is in this dvd, to reformat it to fat32 ( will cleanup all data ). Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjQRkISnHQ4 before formatting.
romfs is a read-only, space-efficient linux filesystem, and this is a place for test kernel patches, and user space tools to manage filesystems in this format.

This project is orphaned, Debian dropped it in 2014, and RH & SUSE stopped using this tree (and feeding back change) long before that so no longer interested in working on it. Feel free to start your own source tarball is available.
A linux from windows installer, that is, an installer that runs on Windows and installs linux.
Bootloader for STM32, XMC, HCS12 and other microcontroller targets.
OpenBLT is mostly used as an STM32 bootloader, due to the popularity of STM32 microcontrollers. However, the bootloader’s architecture is such that it can work with any microcontroller and use any type of communication interface to perform firmware updates.
BootUtils is a collection of utilities to facilitate booting of modern Kernel 2.6 based systems. The process of finding the root volume either by label or explicit label= on the kernel command line, mounting it and 'switchroot'ing is automated.
make multi-boot windows USB key
This program boots the install bootmgr/ntldr for any given ISO file. Make a multiboot windows USB key with Syslinux and FiraDisk. Put one key in your pocket and install multiple versions of windows anywhere. Formats with NTFS. Note: stored iso files must be contiguious... Try any fragmentation program. zzz. Example: 1. copy a large file then delete it from usb.- leave space. 2. run the entire fragmentation process. 3. edit menu.lst in /boot/grub (rename previous iso) 4. boot syslinux. 5. boot grub 7. run gparted 8. delete and reformat partion. 9. COPY CONENTS OF ISO to new partion. 10. boot syslinux 11. boot grub 12. run iso goo.gl/7sVxts A working version with a Mini Windows 10 is in the files section. <3 WARNING NOTE: Make sure the usb disk is for squirrel usb only. lol delete. reformat. $5 etc. Any backtracking will become horridly confused to spoils! Editing the menu by booting the example entries may not be toothsome. Edit files carefully
