I have one Recovery USB drive with Windows 10 from Acer that I want to include along other USB drive sources into one using YUMI Multiboot.

I have already put 4 different utilities and Live OSs in that USB drive with no problem. But the source has to be an ISO file.

 

Thanks guys

Probably not in the sense you need it to, no.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Apparently there's a way!

 

How to Convert a Bootable USB to an .iso File

 

Not exactly obvious (I'll give you that), but it does work! 

Not only did I create that ISO file, but I also put it in my multibooting USB key, AND I just confirmed that it does boot the Acer Recovery tool too!

Yeah, that's not exactly taking an image of your existing USB stick, it's just building a bootable ISO based on its contents.

Optical discs and USB sticks / hdds use different file systems. I wasn't sure if yours needed to be kept in FAT/NTFS type format - as would have been found on the USB stick.
