I have a 128gb usb flash drive on which I want to put bootable ISOs.

Windows 7, 8, 10 install discs and also partedmagic live ISO

I'd like to have a menu from which to choose which ISO image I want to load once I boot from the USB drive.

I found the following application http://www.pendrivelinux.com/xboot-multiboot-iso-usb-creator/

It seems to fit my needs, but I was wondering if people on here had recommendations for such a program.

Thanks

If you don't mind installing a Linux system on your flashdrive you can do this rather easily using the grml-rescueboot package. I used Lubuntu for it's small size and flexiblitly, installed the grml rescueboot package and dropped the ISO's I wanted to boot in the /boot/grml folder and ran sudo update-grub grml-rescueboot adds scripts to generate the menu and the necessary boot entries for all your ISO's. I haven't tested it with Windows Installation ISO's but I've had success with several and it's well worth trying. There's also a Grub Customizer package that you can use to dress up your menu among other things.

Though this is not a software recommendation, but - IODD hosts a lot of ISO images, bootable or not. Some models support also multiple "virtual disks".

(Older USB2.0 models a.k.a. "Zalman Virtual CD emulator")

You could use YUMI, it creates a good menu and places entrys for each Iso loaded! You can get it here for windows:

YUMI multiboot pendrive

It really works great with Linux distros and various rescue discs, so it should work with Windows OS'es too.
