  Problems booting VDisk on UEFI-only notebook
Posted by: mario - 10-06-2021, 03:35 PM - Forum: Ventoy Plugin Forum - Replies (1)

Hi!

First, thanks a lot for developing this innovative USB boot tool.

My goal is to create a bootable USB drive with a customized Ubuntu Linux 20.04 based on VirtualBox images. It shall work on a (quite recent) Notebook
model called Tongfang GM7NG0R (https://noteb.com/?model/model.php?conf=...299&ex=USD). It is the first notebook I have which has no legacy boot support (so UEFI only, but secure boot is disabled).

What I did: I downloaded the Ubuntu ISO (ubuntu-20.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso) and installed it into a fixed-size VDI image as described on the "Linux vDisk Boot Plugin" page. EFI mode has been activated before installation, and the most recent vtoyboot script run. When I boot the USB and select the *.vdi.vtoy image, I see a short black screen and then the system immediately restarts. However, booting the exact same image (on the same USB drive) works fine on other Legacy Boot notebooks, and also on one other UEFI boot machine. Interestingly, on the "problematic" Tonfgang notebook, it is possible to boot the original Ubuntu ISO file using Ventoy.

What could I do to "debug" or resolve the issue? Any help to boot a vDisk on this notebook would be appreciated.

  Boot direct to Vdisk
Posted by: doveman - 10-06-2021, 03:20 PM - Forum: Ventoy Plugin Forum - Replies (2)

Using this ventoy_grub.cfg:

Code:
menuentry "Boot Mint (Xfce)" {   
    set my_vdisk_path="/Virtualbox/LinuxMint(Xfce).vdi.vtoy"
   
    if search -n -s vdiskhd -f "$my_vdisk_path"; then
        vtoyboot_common_func "($vdiskhd)$my_vdisk_path"
    else
        echo "$my_vdisk_path not found"
    fi
}

then after the first menu loads, which says it couldn't find any ISOs, I can press F6 and then boot my vdisk from there, either from the USB stick or the computer's HDD (which is obviously faster). That works but I want to skip straight to the second menu.

I created this ventoy.json:

Code:
{
    "control": [
        { "VTOY_DEFAULT_MENU_MODE": "0" },
        { "VTOY_FILT_DOT_UNDERSCORE_FILE": "1" },
        { "VTOY_SORT_CASE_SENSITIVE": "0" },
        { "VTOY_MAX_SEARCH_LEVEL": "1" },
        { "VTOY_MENU_TIMEOUT": "10" },
        { "VTOY_DEFAULT_KBD_LAYOUT": "QWERTY_UK" },
        { "VTOY_FILE_FLT_VTOY": "1" },
        { "VTOY_DEFAULT_IMAGE": "/Virtualbox/LinuxMint(Xfce).vdi.vtoy" },
    ],
   
   "image_list": [
    "/Virtualbox/LinuxMint(Xfce).vdi.vtoy"
    "/Virtualbox/LinuxMint(MATE).vdi.vtoy"
    ]
}


but it says "syntax error detected" when I boot with that. Can anyone see what's wrong?

Also, I'd like to try booting my vdisk on my PC from my grub4dos boot menu, without needing to use a USB stick, but it seems I need vdiskchain and it doesn't seem to be available anywhere to download, only if you can compile it using the files here https://github.com/ventoy/vdiskchain which I don't know how to do. Is there anywhere I can download it?

  Partition 3 works... sometimes
Posted by: AcklenX - 10-01-2021, 06:27 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (4)

I've noticed that when I reserve space, and then later partition it and save files to it, that partition is not always detected or accessible.  I haven't figured out the pattern yet, but I haven't been very rigorous with my effort.  And Ventoy is so awesome any way I just keep using it.

My situation is that I I help out high school computer club and I am trying to create USB drives that we can boot on the kids laptops, or the schools desktops.  The kids computers are almost always windows (with the occasional mac).  The school computers are desktops and a mix of Windows 7-10 and Linux (Ubuntu and Mint).  We would like to be able to boot to whatever we have loaded on the first partition - and this always works great!  Not a problem at all.  But we also sometimes want to use the USB drive to copy files from machine to machine AND read the file when we use Ventoy to boot.  But some of the machines can't see partition 3 that was created when we reserved space installing Ventoy.  We did also partition that reserved space, labeled it "storage" and added files.  Some windows machines can see it, some can't.  All the linux machines (I think) can see storage just fine.  We created the Ventoy USB drives on both Windows and Linux machines.  I think we used the same options for all (we were supposed to).  But we get inconsistent results.

This is particularly problematic because often we'll have files and information on a Windows machine that we want to then boot into linux, and use that info/file.  But we can't copy it to storage, because Windows doesn't see it.  So we copy it to the first partition "Ventoy".  But then when we boot into via Ventoy into one of the ISOs, the first partition isn't readable, so we can't see our file.

The other problem that I run into, is that I often want to copy the iso files around, but they're on the first partition which isn't useful... there may be 5 or 10 ISOs (I love Ventoy!) but I can't read any of them... I'm not sure how/why it's mounted like that - I assume it's just part of the way that grub2/linux works.  But that points to my holy grail, to be able to read from the first partition while booted into the first partition.  Right now my work around is I copy most things to both partition 1 and partition 3.  But for ISO files that eats up disk space quite quickly.  And I have to commit early on as to how much space I'll reserve. 

Is there a way to verify the current state of the disk from Ventoy's perspective - like what the equivalent command line was?  I expected the -l switch to do this, but it doesn't give enough info that I can tell.  Is there a verbose listing? ;D. I typically create the disks with Ventoy2Disk.sh -i -s -r XXXX /dev/sdX

Am I missing something obvious?  Is this just a linux limitation with booting and reading? I definitely blame Windows Wink  My work around is to carry extra USBs but that just seams antithetical to what Ventoy is and makes possible.  Ventoy is awesome, it's the best/easiest multiboot I've found.  Sorry for sounding greedy and for wanting more.

How to arrange the rows in menu_alias in the order I need

Code:
"menu_alias":[
        {
            "image":"/ISO/Windows_7_Pro_x86_x64_11.08.2021.iso",
            "alias":"Windows 7       Pro    x86 x64                    11.08.2021"
        },
        {
            "image":"/ISO/Windows_7_&_10_Pro_x86_x64_30.05.2021.iso",
            "alias":"Windows 7 & 10  Pro    x86 x64                    30.05.2021"
        },
        {
            "image":"/WinPE/WinPE_Sergei_Strelec_x86_x64_19.07.2021.iso",
            "alias":"WinPE Sergei Strelec   x86 x64                    19.07.2021"
        },
        {
            "image":"/WinPE/WinPE_Super.iso",
            "alias":"WinPE Super"
        },
        {
            "image":"/Memtest/Memtest86+_4.3.7 _& _7.5.0.iso",
            "alias":"Memtest        4.3.7  &  7.5.0"
        }
    ]
}

The boot menu is not in the same order as in "menu_alias"
