You can use up to 999 slots in HxC Manager, you boot to HxC Manager, assign images to slots, and reboot at first image, then you may switch between these slots at any time using Up/Down buttons on the Gotek drive.

Is there a way of loading the first image then NOT rebooting or resetting for other images?

You may fill all the 999 slots with images (no need to boot to the first selected image right away), and then switch them by buttons on the Gotek drive. There is no other way to exit the image loader than reset. Most games are self booting disks, so it would be pointless anyway. You may attach a display and rotary encoder to Gotek and use it to select images, instead of using loader. Now, HxC firmware supports an OSD menu to select images (it requires a slight h/w mod to the computer to plug in the video overlay).
