(Multiboot USB website, list of supported distros, and openSUSE working after USB installation)

As you may know, my multiboot making tools were MultiSystem (since 2015), then Sundar's MultiBootUSB (2018), and recently GLIM (2019), but they all cannot work for openSUSE. Thanks to Aguslr, his program Multiboot USB (not to be confused with MultiBootUSB above) solved this problem for me! This means up to today I never managed to make openSUSE multiboot in a USB while I always managed to make other GNU/Linux distros work successfully such as Ubuntu family, Mint, Trisquel, Debian Regular, Elementary, even Fedora. In this article, I just report my success in making openSUSE Leap 15.1 multibootable USB and then installing it on a laptop. However, this article is just my report and I planned to publish tutorial on this Aguslr's Multiboot USB as soon as possible. Anyway, go ahead and happy working!

How easy it is?

I would love to say it's very easy to use and setup, and in some way, even easier than Multisystem. Why? Because once the setup finished, (unlike MultiSystem) you just need to copy ISO image files to USB stick and (unlike GLIM) without making any directory at all. To remove a distro from multiboot, simply delete the ISO file, no need to open any program. Awesome, right? Number of distro supported by Aguslr's Multiboot USB is far more greater than Multisystem and even GLIM.

 (My installation of openSUSE to USB is as easy as copying the ISO file)

Supported Distros

Believe me, it's far more greater than MultiSystem or MultiBootUSB or GLIM, as you can see yourself here When I saw 'openSUSE' there, I was very glad.

(openSUSE is one among one hundred operating systems supported by Aguslr's MultiBoot USB)

Booting, Installation, and Result

It boots very smooth from USB with familiar bootloader we all knew about. Then it runs the openSUSE installer very well without any error. Finally it finished the installation until I got a beautiful openSUSE desktop. While using MultiSystem or Sundar's MultiBootUSB, I never reached even the first step.

(Installation process takes up to 1 hour with Multiboot USB setup)

(Final result is an installed system working just as I wish)

Final Comments

I am satisfied. Finally I solved my long-term problem today thanks to Aguslr's program, Multiboot USB. I can make the bootable on Ubuntu without changing my OS. Now I can distribute openSUSE in multibootable USB in my home country. Thank you Aguslr.
