    boot multiple OS from external HDD


    Hi,

    first, i really do not know where should i place this post so itīs here.

    ok, i bought new external USB hard drive, and created 4 partitions.
    1. windows 7 to go
    2. windows 10 to go
    3. multiboot linux tools created with YUMI.
    4. normal data for movies etc...

    but i have problem i discovered that i can have only one partition currently marked as active at one time.

    so i need something like "initial boot partition" wich will contains something like boot menu. but i does not know how to create that.

    hope you help me. thanks.
