1st post hello - nu2ventoy - 04-09-2021

hello everyone,
i just want to say I stumbled across ventoy in a thread and as a former yumi user I'm really impressed.  functions great.  created usb with gpt and exfat.  this allowed me to make a persistence file greater than 4gb for live boot os.  I then realized you can create a single boot .vdi in virtualbox with the "efi os" checked off. so I completed the os install and copied and rename file to lbuntu.vdi.vtoy but have been unsuccessful.  after init boot it stops at (initrfs) prompt.  I did copy ventoy.disk.img, ventnoy_vhdboot.img, and ventoy_wimboot.img file to /dev/part1/ventoy directory I also created an entry for it in /dev/part1/ventoy/ventoy_grub.cfg I know there's alot that can be going wrong and hard to diagnose but is there a combo I'm using incrorectly or something missing?   this stuff is very versatile

Once the Linux distribution is installed and running. Run the vtoyboot script to create a process to handle Ventoy booting.
vtoyboot is a project developed with Ventoy and released separately. Download the package from here:

that did it! thank you!  was unaware of the internal script.  

I now have lubuntu 20.04.1   running on 6.6gb vdi file fully upgraded with 1.6gb remaining booting and running off usb without emulation but natively. 

i feel like a little kid who just got his first swiss army knife for the first time and keep finding a new tool in it every time I poke around! Wink

Ventoy is based on grub2, so you can define your own grub2 menu in a cfg file and load it.
For example, you can define a menu to load your local OS (Linux/Windows To Go ...) please refer to https://www.ventoy.net/en/plugin_grubmenu.html , works perfectly .
