Support for .img files are broken in 1.0.22 ??? - mat-industries - 10-07-2020

I have tried to boot some .img files with ventoy newest version 1.0.22
I can´t get any img files working.
Is there a specification wich img formats are working, or is this funktion still broken ?

Which IMG did you test?
Please refer https://www.ventoy.net/en/doc_news.html for supported IMG files.

I have tried self made img files. Created a vhd, installed different operating systems, mostly dos. Then i convert the vhd to img with qemu-img.
All images seams to be fine, but there wont boot with ventoy.
First i will try now one of your tested img files, but for future there will be great to know how to build img files that are bootable. :-)
Is there maybe a howto ?

En, what you said about img file is vdisk file(vhd/vdi/vmdk/raw...)

From Ventoy-1.0.22 linux vdisk boot is supported.  https://www.ventoy.net/en/plugin_vtoyboot.html

Hello longpanda,
thank you for your answer.
But in my case it is really about img files, because it is not possible to boot MS-Dos from a VHD.
So I converted it to an img.
But I can not start this. If I convert the img into an iso it works.
Unfortunately, if I have an iso, I can't change any files later, but with an img it would work.
Maybe you have the ultimate way for me to boot DOS-HDD's. I would be very happy.
