  Ventoy USB-stick takes long to recognize due to FAT16
Posted by: Jordiekk - 11-24-2023, 01:33 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (6)


I have recently started using Ventoy with succes.

However there is one very nuisance. A Ventoy prepared USB-stick (under Windows 10), if a extra ISO is to be added, takes maybe 4 minutes before recognized by the PC (with Windows 10). Before recognizing, all USB-related programs (and Windows Explorer), fail to start. After recognizing, all functions well and normal. Even unplugging and replugging the USB-stick gives then no problem (untill replugging in a new started PC).
The are many reports from different peaple about the same problem.

I found that the Ventoy-stick has a FAT16 Ventoy-system partition. 
I have earlier found, on my PC with Windows 10, that memory-cards which are FAT16 formatted (so 2GB or 4GB cards) give serious confusing recognizing problems. Probably because there are several different recognizing ID-'s for FAT16. When I applied FAT32 for those cards all problems were over.

So I suggest to the developer of Ventoy to change the Ventoy-system partition to FAT32, in my expectation that then the long recognizing problem under Windows10 is over.

  Where do I get the VentoyPlugson.exe
Posted by: Ramses505 - 11-23-2023, 05:42 PM - Forum: iVentoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

I feel I have looked everywhere, obviously not ! I just find this to download - even on the page devoted to it.

Anyway, if anyone can enlighten me as to where I will find it I would be most obliged.

Question Impossible to use iventoy with Windows personal image
Posted by: RMathieu - 11-23-2023, 11:56 AM - Forum: iVentoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)


I captured the image of a Windows machine through WDS.
But when I add it to iVentoy, iVentoy shuts down.

Does iVentoy accept personal Windows iso ?

Thank you for your answers.

  VENTOYEFI partition is not visible.
Posted by: Epictetus - 11-19-2023, 08:39 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

As a new member and user, I am very pleased with Ventoy. It is absolutely magnificent.

I have found this issue when using Ventoy on my Toshiba 500GB SSD. As per the title, the VENTOYEFI partition is not visible on this SSD in Windows File Managers - but it is there!. The SSD boots and works just fine and the VENTOYEFI partition IS visible in WinPE applications.

When I use Ventoy to set up various other Flash Drives, I see the VENTOYEFI partition on those flash drives in Windows file managers - but not on this SSD?

Any thoughts?

Exclamation iventoy PXE boot failed
Posted by: heat_z0ne - 11-18-2023, 01:14 AM - Forum: iVentoy Discussion Forum - No Replies

1st test > iventoy 1.0.19
Asus router as DHCP server ( no advance setting for nextserver and bootfile )
All settings are default except > DHCP server : External / Externalnet ( I tried both)
Gives error : No boot device found ( both Bios and UEFI mode)

Only way to get it work is to change DHCP server setting to " Internal"

I am using AIOboot PXEboot from more then 5yrs
Same network setup. Pc boots without any problem.
( All Pc I clone or repair with this PXE setup)

Please check image for detail.

I think something is missing in iventoy to work with external DHCP without any advance settings.

  Truecrypt Rescue ISO not working.
Posted by: Ted - 11-10-2023, 07:49 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (7)

(sorry, translate with google)

Start the ISO on a USB stick with Ventoy.
In the next menu only 'Boot in memdisk mode' works for Truecrypt (TS).
Truecrypt-Rescue starts.
If the Truecrypt|Windows-Loader is then restored with F8, the query comes from TS:  Disk 0?  y/n
After y(es) the loader is written to the disk 0, but it's the USB-stick! Of course, after that the stick no longer boots and the TS-drive was not updated.
For CDs, TS does not mix up hard drives, the first real hard drive is used. 
In the BIOS I can define the USB stick as a CD, but Ventoy no longer boots as a CD.

The Ventoy stick should somehow be recognized in the system as a CD (or as a Not-Harddisk-Thing) not as a hard drive. 

Then TS would do everything right.

  Linux Grub

I'm trying to add ventoy to my Ubuntu grub menu.
My ventoy is installed on a 2nd ssd drive on my laptop as sdb.
My /etc/grub.d/40_custom file is:

exec tail -n +3 $0
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.
menuentry 'Ventoy Boot USB' {
insmod part_gpt
insmod ext2
insmod fat
insmod exfat
insmod ntfs
insmod chain
search --no-floppy --set=root --fs-uuid 8CC4-D433
set search_efi_path=(hd1,2)/ventoy
# chainloader /dev/sdb2/ventoy/ventoy_x64.efi
chainloader (hd1,2)/ventoy/ventoy_x64.efi

I've run update-grub and when I boot I see ventoy on the grub list:
But when I run it I get"
"Invalid signature"

What am I doing wrong?
