    I have a spare 4GB SD card now and want to put some tools on it. Only have GParted now.

    I'm looking for system rescue tools as well as exploitation/cracking/whateveryoucallthem tools. I'll be using YUMI for this.

    Now while YUMI have a list of distros, I can't really research every one of them to decide. Space is rather limited so I can't put too much.

    If you've made a multiboot USB before I'd appreciate it if you can give me some advices.

    You could try hirens or ultimate boot cd as well as a copy of Linux, if you had more space I would of said kali Linux but you can always run another variant of ubuntu

    Me personally would have ultimate boot, Windows 7 and Ubuntu or mint

    Always a little worried when someone creates an account to specifically advertise their own work, especially with such an amateurish looking website. No offence to you but OP i would stay away if I were you

    FYI, hey, "no offense" but just by saying "no offence" and then being offensive is rather silly, don't you think?

    I forgot
    Advertising like that is actually against the rules, so just report him ;)

    You could always put JayRo's Medicat on it. Comes with Linux Mint, and has a bunch of other recovery tools. http://gbatemp.net/threads/medicat-dvd-a-multiboot-linux-dvd.361577/

    Again, a silly answer. I answered the OP's question with good advice. If you tried it and found it is not good advice then offer a better alternative instead of just whining.

    Sorry, are you 12. I'm trying to be civil and give my personal opinion and you're acting like a spoilt impudent child who couldn't get his own way

    Is the USB a U3 Sandisk by chance? Many people are simply annoyed by the U3 partition, but little do they know that you can modify the ISO to anything you want, within the size restraints of the USB drive. It's basically a free USB CD-Rom emulator. I personally keep my Microsoft Office 2013 installation DVD on my 2GB U3 drive, with both 64-bit and 32-bit versions on the same ISO. That still leaves me with 400MB+ on the flash side, for word documents and other YUMI-bootable utilities up to (and around) 400MB.

    If the computer can boot from a USB CD-Rom drive, then it should be able to boot your custom ISO as well. I've got another 2GB U3 drive with a Windows XP SP3 ISO permanently on it, so I can quickly install XP without worrying about the ISO being deleted or tampered with in any way.
