  Cannot boot machines using "External" DHCP Server Mode
Posted by: techion - Yesterday, 12:15 PM - Forum: iVentoy Discussion Forum - No Replies

I'm trying to integrate iVentoy (version 1.0.19 Linux 64-bit) into my existing LAN which has isc-dhcp-server on Ubuntu serving IP addresses.
I've installed iVentoy onto this same machine and set DHCP server mode to "External".

When I try to boot machines, I get pxelinux.0 errors like this:-

[Image: Screenshot-from-2023-10-02-12-30-49.png]

If i temporarily disable isc-dhcp-server and set iVentoy to "Internal", the machines will then startup and show the list of ISO's to load.

Is something extra required when using "External" mode, there doesn't seem to be any mention in the Getting Started instructions

  Mount VHD and boot off ISO
Posted by: Chell - Yesterday, 08:07 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

Hi All

Is it possible to mount a virtual hard drive and then boot from a DVD ISO?
For example, loading windows. I need the VHD mounted as the drive windows is being installed onto, and I want to boot off the windows DVD ISO to run the set-up.

  rear / clonezilla ISO not recovering using iventoy
Posted by: whitebelt27 - 10-01-2023, 07:24 AM - Forum: iVentoy Discussion Forum - No Replies

Hi =)

i have 2 servers:
1. PXE server using iVentoy
2. testing server
i've taken two backups of the second server using REAR (Relax and Recover) and CloneZilla - both are in ISO format, with standalone unattended restore capability

now here's my problem:
when i mount the ISO (either one) directly through IPMI the ISO works fine and the system is restored (unattended)
when i boot the testing server using PXE to iVentoy environment and choose the ISO (either one) from the iVentoy list - the ISO initially loads but fails to run, system reports it can't find the restore files as if the ISO is not mounted at all

in clonezilla case - it fails in the part where it's trying to load squashfs
in rear case - it fails to find the restore data

should it technically work? or am i missing something?
let me know if you require any more info,

  Ventoy no longer boots
Posted by: balanga - 09-28-2023, 06:27 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (1)

I had a working version of Ventoy which I was very happy with, but it no longer boots.

I created an additional partition on my Ventoy disk and installed Linux (OpenSuse) on it. That installed it's own grub and now when I boot, the system starts OpenSuse.

How do I recover Ventoy's grub loader?

Question How to add Device Drivers during Windows Setup?
Posted by: StephenSky - 09-28-2023, 03:50 AM - Forum: iVentoy Discussion Forum - No Replies

Add Device Drivers to Windows During Windows Setup | Microsoft Learn

Looking to create a Windows answer file (unattend.xml) to go with a Windows 10 install.

How do I get device drivers be available during the windowsPE stage?  I am trying to avoid modifying the Windows 10 .iso and placing the files inside there.

I understand iVentoy provides a HTTP server to serve files which I can get to work when sending PowerShell scripts during the Windows auditUser and auditSystem phases.

The problem I am facing here is that prior to configuring the drive and partitions, there needs to be specific Intel drivers to be installed before formatting and partitioning of the drives can be performed during the Windows install. I figure I am able to use the auto-injection feature of iVentoy to get the files into the X:\ boot drive however how am I able to automatically get these drivers to be installed?

  Can't boot any resolution but 800x600, but WinPE video is garbled
Posted by: aaronpriest - 09-22-2023, 02:42 PM - Forum: iVentoy Discussion Forum - Replies (3)

I have an Intel NUC that refuses to boot iVentoy unless the boot menu resolution is set to 800x600. However, if I set the resolution that low, then every WinPE .iso I boot has a garbled display after the Windows boot logo, so I still can't get it to work. When I try higher resolutions I get errors like attached. Any ideas?

Photo ventoy文件注入功能
Posted by: wise800 - 09-22-2023, 02:50 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

在使用ventoy启动PE时,若PE的ISO根目录中有ventoy.dat文件时,文件注入插件会失败;若删除根目录下的ventoy.dat文件,文件注入成功,但是这样PE启动时,会加载ISO驱动器,不能直接弹出USB(等同于ISO文件如何标记自己是 Ventoy Compatible 的功能失效。详www.ventoy.net/cn/doc_compatible_mark.html)。目前测试了多个PE都存在这种现象,不知道这个是否是一个bug,或者是我在使用文件注入插件时操作错误。希望能解决我的困惑,谢谢!

Will it be possible in future versions of iVentoy to boot BIN or IMG images like what can be done with Ventoy?
