Raspberry Pi Imager, how can install 3 or 4 OSs including Raspbian OS

Sat Apr 04, 2020 4:14 pm

Raspberry Pi Imager
After download for windows 10 - Raspberry Pi Imager, how can install 3 or 4 OSs including Raspbian OS... in the SAME micro sd card? Can you use a 64GB micro sd card for this?
you have a video on YouTube about installing more than one OS using Raspberry Pi Imager?

I can install even 10 OSs on the same micro sd card if having space?

I believe the intended purpose of the relatively new Raspberry Pi Imager tool is to install a single Operating System image onto a microSD card.

Maybe see PINN, a user-supported tool which has its own lengthy thread in these forums.

The Imager program will normally only install one OS on a card.

But you can use it to install PINN which allows you to install more than one OS
