AIO Boot is a handy utility that enables you to create a bootable USB or disk drive with Grub2, Clover or Syslinux in a few simple steps. Additionally, it allows you to boot via LAN with PXE Server and iPXE Tiny, as well as integrate multiple operating systems or support programs.
The program is not too difficult to use, and it features a simple, somewhat outdated interface. However, it must be noted that no English documentation is available.
Straightforward installation and deployment procedure
Once you have downloaded the application, you need to select the drive where the necessary files should be extracted. This should be the bootable USB or HDD you wish to create.
After unpacking, the application will be launched automatically, and you can install either Grub2, Clover or Syslinux with only a single mouse click. Additionally, you can restore the Windows bootloader in legacy (GPT) or UEFI mode, as well as run PXE and edit or delete the MENU (except for Windows packages).
Integrate multiple operating systems or support programs
Once you have installed the desired component, you can switch to the “Integration” tab and select a package that you wish to integrate. For example, when it comes to Windows, you can select Windows 7, 8.1, 10, XP or 2003, WinPE 7, 8.1, 10 or XP. DOS programs are autodetected.
The program provides you with helpful links that can be used to find and download the necessary software. After obtaining the application package you would like to integrate, you need to provide the local path to the downloaded ISO file.
Configure app settings and access other tools
As far as program settings are concerned, you can switch to a different UI language, let the app know if your PC has 32-bit UEFI firmware (to restore Windows in UEFI), prevent it from accessing the MENU for editing or deleting, and configure PXE boot for UEFI mode. Also, you can access the Bootice, WinContig and 7-Zip tools from AIO Boot.
Simple bootable disk creator with Grub2, Clover and Syslinux support
If you have a certain amount of experience with these operations, creating a bootable drive should not be too difficult. The UI features a fairly straightforward layout, so instructions may not be necessary. However, it would have been great if a comprehensive user manual were available, as novices may not fully understand the process.
All in all, AIO Boot is a useful application that enables you to create bootable USB drives, hard drives or even memory cards using Grub2, Clover or Syslinux. It features a minimalistic UI with neatly organized options, but it does not offer any English documentation.
