    Not a good idea, MediCat needs to be on it's own USB stick.

    Kon-Boot has been updated. Any chances to include new versions in next update?

    Is it relatively simple to add say another windows 10 Live iso to your collective. Id like to add my copy of gandalf's windows live 10 redstone and windows 7 live to the boot order

    @Jayro Hello there, not sure if you had seen the message, as I forgot to mention you, but I figured to try again. I would really appreciate if you could lend us a hand with this issue.

    @TheMCNerd2017 , I think we have the same issue, so I figured you'd be interested.

    Thank you :)
    If I would like to play and learn a little bit, how could I do a medicat with multiboot. On English speaking sites I only found an installation guides with rufus, but If I try with Yumi, I'm not sure what distro do I have to choose, and why does it even matter?

    I'm sorry if I'm being annoying, but I'm curious

    Yumi has a MediCat setting. I'd try that, and then go from there adding more.

    Sorry, didn't mean to skip over you. I'm not notified about every comment on here. I did some digging, and found that not all BIOS support certain syscalls under Syslinux. So through no fault of your own, MediCat might just be incompatible with your board.

    Very odd. So apparently my 2013 Laptop(which is UEFI) is not compatible with certain syscalls under Syslinux? I can open the menus, I just can't choose any diagnostic utilities as they give the usual "not a COM32 image" error.

    Not sure if something changed in between, but I'm able to boot Medicat 16.04 from a burned DVD in the same device. Perhaps the different Syslinux versions changed BIOS handling syscalls?

    It's very well possible. I made sure v18.10 has the latest version.

    Can this be used to do a fresh install of windows 10 at all?
