Version 20.05 of MediCat USB has just been released!
This is a completely new animal... It's been made from the ground up over the weekend using a relatively new USB booting tool named vertoy. (www.ventoy.net) It's essentially a special GRUB2 menu that can boot up in either BIOS or UEFI. You just place your ISO images onto the root of the drive, or in folders, and the menu will auto-detect and list them for you. I have done all the hard work of getting every ISO on this USB image working, and labelled accordingly for BIOS, EFI, or MEMDISK. I have not tested any Windows installers, so your mileage may vary. (Feedback on that would be great!) If you look at the blue text on the bottom left of the screen, you can tell if you're booted via BIOS or UEFI, and that's very handy. There are also F1 through F3 toggles for various functions, like booting an ISO using MEMDISK, power options, and a "List view" that will show all the ISOs on the drive alphabetically, without folder sorting. Some tools didn't make the cut due to incompatibilities, and other tools have made their first appearance on MediCat. My bootable version of Malwarebytes is on here as well, with network support and updatable virus definitions. MD5, SHA1, and CRC32 hashes are now in the download folders for easy hash checking. Since this is a complete rebuild from the ground up, I've also decided to redesign the cat logo; It just felt like the right thing to do for this fresh release. I've spent close to 74 hours working on this with very little sleep, AND working full-time, so I hope it was worth the wait. My brother's death in early March definitely halted life and minor obligations for me for a while, but I'm better now and getting things back on track. Thank you for all your support and letting me take my time on this. I hope you enjoy my labor of love.
