solved 【Solved】Ventoy MBR only mode - is this possible ??
Posted by: smallhagrid - Yesterday, 04:08 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (3)

Greetings Longpanda and All.
I think Ventoy is absolutely wonderful.

If anyone can, please tell me how to get around this problem I ran across in trying to use it...?

I was helping a friend with his Linux PC;
His HDD was old & he bought a new 500GB HDD & asked me to transfer his stuff to it, so I went for a visit to his house to do that for him.

Using my wonderful Ventoy powered USB stick in his PC that is set up for normal MBR & BIOS booting, I tried starting GParted via Ventoy, and it somehow defaulted to UEFI mode, and then failed to boot.

I then chose PartedMagic via Ventoy instead, and it booted fine.

My query:
Is some way to make Ventoy absolutely never use or default to UEFI ??
(I only ever remove UEFI & GPT & 'secure boot' stuff from any PC that I touch as I don't do wintel stuff at all.)

Thanks for any help !!

Bug Ventoy2Disk Will not Update Existing Ventoy Version
Posted by: Orochi - 01-21-2021, 11:13 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (3)

I installed Ventoy to my 256gb usb stick.
Now for some reason, when I tried to update my usb stick with latest Ventoy version, Ventoy2Disk doesn't see that Ventoy 
is already installed and doesn't offer to update. I only have option for a new install.

All I did was convert exFat to NTFS and used 2048kb cluster as per FAQ. I also placed ventoy.disk.img.xz to Ventoy dir on primary partition.

Any ideas?

  [FR] UI for Linux and possible fork
Posted by: Rafael - 01-18-2021, 09:44 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

Since I'm using Ventoy, I miss an UI for Linux. In fact, before Ventoy existed, I used MultiJBootUSB, that have UI for Linux. However, I continue using MultiBootUSB cause it has a great interface to launch ISO's and USB's distros using QEMU. I don't know if Ventoy Windows version has that possibility, but it would great in a Linux UI.
MultiBootUSB is outdated since 2018-04-04 and its domain is for sell. I don't know if both projects are using same language, but I suggest to fork the MultiBootUSB interface and reuse its UI to give Linux users a way to simplify the use of Ventoy, adding the QEMU launch possibiity.
Thank you

solved [Solved] Starting Ventoy from EFI commandline in Text mode
Posted by: zittware - 01-11-2021, 08:51 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

My day job is BIOS engineer working in UEFI and have just started using Ventoy as my main usb stick for personal use.

I've been thinking about using Ventoy in my Day job...

Is the source for Ventoy available somewhere?

Specifically; I'd like to be able to run Ventoy from the UEFI shell and pass it a --text parameter on the commandline. This should cause Ventoy to run as a EFI application and print a list of selections (ISOs) in table form to the console.

Think of this as a crude text launcher for ISOs. 

I'd use this in place of the graphical gui since most of my work is done remotely over a usb serial port in the shell. These systems are "headless" and don't have a usb keyboard/mouse/monitor attached. All work is done on these systems via the serial port (TeraTerm).

Could Ventoy.json be used to force Text mode?

  [Question]Is it possible to change Layout?
Posted by: quaxth - 01-10-2021, 01:56 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

[Question]Is it possible to change the Layout?

I already created a USB-HDD (320GB) with Ventoy and it works fine. 

Now to my question: I placed the ISO's in Directories named to /Windows/Windows 10, /Windows/Windows PE, /Linux, etc., etc.! Starting Ventoy I just get the file names of the ISO's listed but the Directory structure. It would be much easier to find a special ISO out of a bunch of other ISO's if the Directory structure would be listed at first, and click on the needed would open and show the ISO's of that Directory. Now it only shows all ISO's in alphabetical order. 

My plan is to add all needed ISO's on that 320GB HDD and that would be quite a bit! That USB HDD will be used also by my staff to service customers.

Thanks for any info.

solved 【Solved】Grub compile error
Posted by: mrplick - 01-07-2021, 10:16 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

Tried to compile Ventoy 1.32 from source.
Grub Core.img is coming out at 0kb.
I am getting this error when compiling Grub separately.
Compiles fine on 1.31 source.  Compiled using Longpanda's guide on Github.
Likely an error on my part as I am new to compiling.

ventoy/ventoy.c:49:19: fatal error: miniz.h: No such file or directory
#include "miniz.h"
