    And just copying the distros / easy2boot on USB to another one or to the hard disk and then to USB-Stick seems to work.

    With YUMI it is also possible to run multiple distros / ISOs from a single USB-Stick.

    Copying back and forth has worked well for me using Sandisk flashdrives.

    But I just tried it out on a Kanguru brand flash drive with a write switch and it wouldn't boot.
    Only Rufus would make it bootable and I had to install Puppy from a fresh iso file.

    So there is that exception.

    And suddelny the easy2boot USB-Sticks are not bootable anymore, ldlinux.c32 couldn't be loaded or so is displayed.

    Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-29-1.2 looks very good as well (besides of the flickering display.
