Daily Blog #206: Download our Multi Boot USB Drive

Hello Reader,
        Many of you have expressed interest in our project to create a thumbdrive that can boot multiple live distributions and also have a live response toolkit partition. In fact yesterdays blog showing how to create your own has been one of the more popular posts this year. I thought I would follow that up with a link to download the thumbdrive image we've already made so you can use ours if you don't want to make your own. You can download it here:

Update 1/23/14: Google Drive was shutting down the link due to excess traffic due to the size and the number of concurrent downloads. Here is a new link from Mega that is claiming to give me 46TB of bandwidth.

Things to know:
1. This thumbdrive image when restored is not write protected, if you want write protection against whatever nastiness is going to be on a live system you will plug it in into get a thumb drive that has a write protect switch. The Kanguru SS3 http://www.amazon.com/Kanguru-Flash-Physical-Protect-switch/dp/B008OGNM8E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389798136&sr=8-1&keywords=kanguru+ss3 is the drive we are testing with and having good success with.

2. We removed Kali Linux from the image until we understand the licensing issues of some of the bundled software. We've emailed them asking for clarification and if we are free to redistribute their ISO in our image I'll update the link.

3. The live response partition is fat32, and contains directories for osx/linux/windows natively compiled tools.

4. We are not responsible for any issues that arrive in the use of this, this is not a commercial or supported product. If you have questions you are welcome to send them to info@g-cpartners.com but understand that this is just a fun side project for us right now that we thought others would find useful.

Have an ISO or tool you think should be included? Please leave a comment below and we'll see if it will work!
