Success! Very Happy
I just got done burning two multipup cd's that booted perfectly.
This will be a perfect method of distributing Puppy iso's to share.
Thanks for all of the help,
Les

Les, now that you have MultiPup working you should have a a look at BSME (Boot Splash Message Editor). This is a companion to MultiPup so you can design your own splash screens.

Hi smokey - is that pet for 64bit machines only?

No, it will work on both 32 and 64bit. It actually has binaries for both. A bit of clever coding determines which one to use.

PostPosted: Mon 27 Jul 2015, 21:42    Post subject: Multipup for USB?
Subject description: Or a simple guide to easily adapt 5.1 to USB
 

G'day,

Posting from a Wheezy Pup running in RAM and booted from an 8GB USB flash thumb drive set up with a Multipup-created iso.

But this has been a bit of a struggle.
I easily created the Multipup iso, once I found out what the 'Series' meant (don't use '1'! Embarassed ) and where to make the iso file (on a >8GB free-space partition).

Checked the iso by burning it first to a R-W DVD then to a non-re-writable DVD as archive/spare. Very easy and nice.

But as DVD is debatably an obsolete technology, I wanted to use a USB device as a Multipup source.

Puppy Universal Installer did not like the Multipup iso but did at least create a bootable USB for me.

I did a manual copy of the mounted Multipup iso files to the USB but the USB did not boot such that I could pick a Pup nor did it display the nice splash screen that I had with the DVDs.

I used this thread ( http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=2083688680&t=82373 ) to install Grub4Dos to the USB drive to finally get a boot menu that will let me boot to one of the USB's Pups.

In an old posting to the above thread, puppyluvr did mention he was hoping to add a USB option to Multipup.

Could this Multipup-on-a-USB be added into Multipup-5.1 at some point in the near future in an easy-to-do and explained way? And maybe explain what the 'Series' options mean for those newer to Puppy.

Thanks,

David S.

David I will have a look at it but I make no promises at this stage.

With all due respect to puppyluvr and smokey01, the simplest way to make a multi-boot USB drive is with ISObooter.

Hello @Davids45. (Removed original text)

Edit: Sorry David, I missed that you have already created a DVD and it boots properly

CatDude and I have spent considerable time adding USB functionality to MultiPup. From our testing it seems to work quite well but it could do with a bit more from others who are not so familiar with it.

I don't want to release it to the masses before more testing has been done. If you are interested in helping, please PM me and I will send you a copy/link.

Cheers

MultiPup-6.0 has been released.

This version of MultiPup includes USB flash drive functionality. In other words you can now make a MultiPup on a CD, DVD and USB flash drive.

*************** WARNING ****************
When creating a USB you will be asked to select a USB flash drive. Make sure you select the correct drive or the results could be disastrous. We have included a button to check the drive which will help you identify the correct one.

Not everyone uses a new USB flash drive, so to provide the best chance of making the USB flash drive bootable we have prepared the drive by doing the following:
Delete all existing partitions
Create a new single partition
Set the boot flag
Install GRUB
Copy the Distro files.

Most Pups will work but you will find the odd one that won't, especially where the boot process is not using the standard pup method like JL64-603.

MultiPup-6.0 is distributed as a .tar.gz file. It works on both 32bit and 64bit systems. Extract the archive to a drive with lots of space, not /root. MultiPup will extract into it's own directory called MultiPup-v6.0.
Enter the directory and click on the icon to execute. There are plenty of tooltips on the buttons and step by step instructions on the help button. If you're new to MultiPup I suggest you keep the help open.
Download here:
http://smokey01.com/software/utility/MultiPup-v6.0.tar.gz
Final warning: You accept all responsibility when using MultiPup.

When asked to type in your flash drive, make sure you include the number. EG: sdb1 or sdc1 NOT sdb or sdc. If your flash drive is sdg1 or greater do not use MultiPup with USB flash drives.

Enjoy

Always thought this was one of the best progress bars ever created.

Is it still an operational piece in MultiPUP?
