GPT compatibility - perico - 08-01-2021

I have a Toshiba Satellite P755 bought 10 years ago. Of course it must be started in legacy bios mode. Since I have another very recent computer (Lenovo), I configured Ventoy in safe mode and Uefi with GPT not MBR. In the first instance my USB did not boot on the Satellite and I thought it was one of the rare computers not compatible with GPT. Fortunately, I was able to solve it by setting the bios to normal boot and not fast mode and thus I was able to boot successfully on both machines with a single USB drive. I mention this in case anyone experiences the same problem. Smile

Fast mode means the BIOS will not detect USB drives before booting to the internal hard disk.
You must disable Fast mode to boot from USB.
