ei.cfg bypass ventoy - memo - 03-04-2022

Devices that have a key saved in the bios, there is no option to choose to editon.

Is it possible to inject ei.cfg while booting iso or another bypass??

use an XML file with an install-only product key as used in easy2boot

Halfway solution. I would like to have a edition selection during installation.

firstly read this article  from ventoy web site : https://www.ventoy.net/en/plugin_injection.html

1. Put windows_injection.7z file to Ventoy first partition (for example : /ISO/windows_injection.7z )
2. Copy Win10/Win11 ISO file to ISO directory ( /ISO/Win10_x86_64.iso )
    windows_injection.7z and Win10_x86_x64.iso files must be same directory.

3. Write necessary codes to ventoy.json file

"injection": [
        {
            "image": "/ISO/Win10_x86_x64.iso",
            "archive": "/ISO/windows_injection.7z"
        }
    ],

This can be done with an XML file. Just use an empty <key> line

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">

<settings pass="windowsPE">

Use VentoyPlugson to generate the ventoy.json file.
