    I'm a computer tech/repair person and I am trying to put together a MEGA USB flash drive consisting of various tools and installations I have come across the Medicat program and was very intrigued as I also use Hiren's Boot CD however when trying to make a multiboot USB with WINTOFLASH professional I encounter an error "unable to load COM32 vesamenu" when trying to load the Medicat program from the resulted USB any help would be appreciated :)

    I've never used WINTOFLASH, but some people have managed to get it working with Easy2Boot. I've never used that either, but I hear it works. YUMI is also another multiboot option.

    I've tried YUMI and to be honest it's not my flavor you have to add iso one at a time and it's limited in functionality but thank you for the quick reply

    Syslinux 6.03, and needs to be booted from BIOS, not UEFI.

    I found the version number for it :) the only thing I can think of is the syslinux is a different version for wintoflash how could I make them match?

    Chapeau! you made a great product, awesome!
    but I find it a little poorly documented, I want to put some software on both lubuntu and win10 and make it persistent so
    every time i boot the usb I can use it.
    Precisely I think clonezilla should be included because it works very well with ext4 fs (other tools have problems)
    can I include it myself somehow?
    Also I have some portable windows programs I would like to use.
    Thank you for your hard work, can't wait oct 23 to try the new version with aardvark and creators update :)

    It is included, you just have to boot up PartedMagic to use it.

    Not to excite anyone too soon, but the guy who made Plop boot manager is working on a new boot manager for both BIOS and UEFI. And he states he might even release a v5.1 of Plop, since he's found bugs to fix in the USB drivers! If either of these release, I'll do my best to incorporate them into MediCat USB.

    Did you use Rufus to put it on the USB stick? And are you using the latest release?

    Please help me to add Victoria 3.52 (for DOS, not foe Windows) in MediCat flash drive. I can't.

    I put victoria.ima (goo.gl/48oZ8G) into MEDICAT folder on usb flash. Add this text in harddisk_tools.cfg (between GParted and Norton Ghost):
    Code:
    LABEL Victoria v3.52
    MENU LABEL Victoria v3.52 ==>
    KERNEL memdisk
            kernel /memdisk
        APPEND ramdisk_size=900000 initrd=/MEDICAT/victoria.ima
    text help
                             Victoria v3.52.
    endtext
    But i get next error: s018.radikal.ru/i509/1710/99/08a630412ad4.jpg

    How i fix it? Thanks!
