Does it support IMG files? if not could you add support for it

Currently NOT, but in my plan.

BTW, what distributions only support img format (without ISO file)?
or which img file you want to boot?

I created Chrome os image according to this website: https://github.com/imperador/chromefy
in the end I received img file

I read that just renaming ext from img to iso works. Try it, if not, rename it again. Nothing to it.
Also read this info on the subject:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/1205768/how-to-convert-an-iso-file-to-img-format-in-linux

That the other way around, but it works also from img to iso.

Try to boot the multiarch iso of GRUB2 File Manager with Ventoy and then use it to boot the img file

First time heard of grub2fm. Compiled and let Ventoy boot it, but got all kinds of error messages. Are their other options to put in?
Let Ventoy boot "grubfm.iso". It booted but errors. I have x64 pc.

You don't have to compile it by yourself all you have to do is to download the multiarch iso from here :https://github.com/a1ive/grub2-filemanager/releases


btw thanks to kamykasii for the discovery, it is an awesome tool !


RE: Does it support IMG files? - vmclark - 06-17-2020

Didn't know I could DL the compiled file. I found out its the multiarch iso that works. I was trying some of the ones I compiled. They didn't work on my UEFI.

Thanks for the link.
