  Ventoy does not install
Posted by: bbrun - 05-04-2022, 05:44 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (1)

Hello everyone, I specify that I do not know English and I wrote in Italian and then use an automatic translator, so if you find written things not understandable have patience and ask for clarification.

I have a problem with the installation of Ventoy on Windows 10 Enterprise.

I had a version just above 1.0.50, since it had recently I clicked on the "Update" button, the result was that ventoy stopped working.

I picked up Ventoy 1.0.72 and installed it from scratch, which doesn't even install.
I thought that, as sometimes happens, some software versions come out that have problems and I waited for the next version, but this one doesn't install either.

I found an old version, 1.0.18, in my pc, I try to install it and.... IT INSTALLS, too bad it doesn't work, I send Ventoy to hell.

After a while I see that 1.0.74 has been released and I try with this, failure confirmed.

I start to investigate, and in the log file I find an "Error 5" message.
I search on the net and I find some things that, for me that I am less than a software expert, are not very understandable.
In an answer, however, I find a feasible thing "first of all try to disable the antivirus" (I use the Windows one), I try it and Ventoy installs!

Could someone please explain to me why Ventoy used to install and now it doesn't anymore, unless I disable the antivirus?

Thank you.

  Original Windows 10 21H2 ISOs based on "install.wim" do not work in UEFI mode(SB off)
Posted by: JJJKKK - 05-03-2022, 09:34 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (1)

Original Windows 10 21H2 ISOs do not work in UEFI mode(secure boot disabled), if they are based on the uncompressed install.wim. This includes updated ISOs from MSDN(see examples below) and the ones that Rufus downloads(vanilla RTM 21H2 from November). On the other hand, ISOs based on the compressed install.esd, like the ones that the "Media Creation Tool" creates, work just fine. Tested on an older Gigabyte Z77 and on a new Asus B560. Result is a blinking cursor above the blue Windows logo, and that's it.

Examples of ISOs that don't work:

  • en-us_windows_10_consumer_editions_version_21h2_updated_april_2022_x64_dvd_a545527b.iso
  • en-us_windows_10_business_editions_version_21h2_updated_april_2022_x64_dvd_38bad9d1.iso
  • en-us_windows_10_consumer_editions_version_21h2_updated_march_2022_x64_dvd_86f47135.iso
Thank you, Sir!

  Problem with EasyOS
Posted by: pzeta - 05-02-2022, 06:48 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (4)

I tested EasyOS 3.4.1 with Ventoy and it was OK, no problem.
Today I've tested EasyOS 3.4.7, but it does not boot and give an error and a Kernel Panic.

erro: file '/lib/modules/5.15.35/kernel/drivers/dax/dax.ko' not found.
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I tested on two different systems, on ACER EeePC 1015CX, 320 GB HDD and 2 GB ram and on
HP Z220 Workstation 128 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD, 16 GB ram.
To test I used Verbatim Store'n'Go 8 GB and Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB.

I also verify that the problem appears with version 3.4.3 and is present in version 3.4.4, 3.4.5, 3.4.6, 3.4.7 of EasyOS.

I use Ventoy version 1.0.74.

Writing EasyOS-3.4.7-amd64.img on the same key using Win32DiskImager-1.0.0-binary run OK.

  [Feature suggestion ] Update Ventoy version Automaticly over internet
Posted by: crasadure - 04-30-2022, 01:50 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - No Replies

Hi @ventoy

With the ventoy Update button in the ventoy2disk.exe file, we can manually update our current system to a higher version. How about we make the update process automatically update Ventoy to a higher version by putting an Auto Update button on the interface?
When a new version of Ventoy comes out, it should ask the user if you want to update to the new version. When the Update button is pressed, the system will automatically update the VTOYEFI section over the internet in the background.
In this way, those who want can update their system manually, and those who want can update it automatically over the internet.

  How to find the flash drive in GRUB for a cat command?
Posted by: grizzogor - 04-29-2022, 07:05 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (1)

Hi, I'm using Ventoy for a new recovery disk at my workplace's IT department.
On the extra GRUB menu (/ventoy/ventoy_grub.cfg), I have a menu item that runs a cat command to display what software versions are used on the disk. Currently the menu item entry is programmed like this: (some parts I've pulled from Ventoy's other partition under Linux, like vtInputKey)

menuentry 'Read VERSIONS.txt' --class=F5tool {
    cat (hd0,gpt1)/VERSIONS.txt
        echo -e "\nPress ENTER to exit..."
        read vtInputKey
This works on a majority of machines I've tested, a Microsoft Surface Pro 6, a VMware VM, and an HP envy laptop of unknown model. But on some machines, GRUB can't find the file listed. I theorize that the exFAT partition is mounted at a different path depending on the computer's configuration. 

Is there a way to figure out where the exFAT partition is mounted, so that the cat command would work every time?

  Problem With Two Monitors
Posted by: Starkebogen - 04-29-2022, 06:32 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (2)

I started using Ventoy about two weeks ago.  It has already been a great help to me.  I built a Windows 10 Ventoy USB drive and added Hiren’s BootCD PE to it.  This worked well on my two Windows 10 PCs (a desktop with two monitors and a laptop).  It also worked on a friend’s PC.
About a week later I added the EaseUS Recovery iso to the Ventoy drive.  On the desktop the new iso would not load and caused the system to hang.  On the laptop it launched and ran successfully.
Over the next 24 hours I added two more iso files to the Ventoy drive: AOMEI PE and Macrium Reflect Rescue.
All the iso files operated successfully on the laptop, but on the desktop the iso file that is second alphabetically will not run.  N.B. Changing the name of the problem iso file so that another file is second alphabetically transfers the problem to the file that is now second alphabetically.  I suspect that the second monitor is the cause of the problem.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?  Does anyone have any advice?

  Can't Get There From Here
Posted by: greno - 04-28-2022, 06:40 PM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - Replies (7)

Ventoy newbie here.  Been reading Ventoy forum and many others for days.

Years ago I used something called USBoot to create a bootable Windows XP installation on a USB flash drive.
This worked extremely well since I went full time Linux starting around 2006.
But that was many laptops and hard drives ago.
I see now that it looks like USBoot has died.

So here's my current problem.  I have an HP dv7t-7000 notebook @2012 with a good Intel i7-3620MQ 8-thread CPU that I've upgraded over time to max memory 16GB.
The HDD in this machine has now died.  Taking with it my Windows 7 Home Prem and Fedora Linux installations. I have a backup of all my personal stuff so I'm not worried about that. I bought a new SSD drive and this time I'd like to do something like a USBoot USB for my Windows 7 Home Prem and then just have Linux on the SSD.  I haven't needed Windows except for a couple old programs like tax software and for my engine dyno simulation software and for things like BIOS flashing (damn HP for ever changing from DOS based to Windows based BIOS flashing but I digress).  So I still need it but not very often.

So right now I have no machines with Windows.  I do have Linux machines.  So how do I go about using Linux to create a Windows installation on USB that'll boot UEFI? 
As the title says, to me it looks like Can't Get There From Here. Sad

  How to boot of a third btrfs partion on a usb drive
Posted by: wolf2482#1639 - 04-25-2022, 02:04 AM - Forum: Ventoy Discussion Forum - No Replies

Ok I was wondering how could I install arch linux on to a third btrfs partion and have that as a boot option I assume it is possible because Ventoy uses grub but I don't know how. could anyone tell me what changes in the arch install process I would have to do. I have never messed with grub before so and I struggled installing on my pc and once I got it to work I have no idea why it worked. So anyway what resources would be useful for me to do this?
