Force WIMBOOT mode for an ISO - vp5k - 06-06-2022

Hi,
I have a set of Windows ISO that don't boot properly in normal mode but boot fine in WIMBOOT mode.
Is there a way to "mark" an ISO file to automatically use the WIMBOOT mode without additional action?

Thanks

Try this CI release: https://github.com/ventoy/Ventoy/actions/runs/2458653039

It will auto use wimboot mode if the ISO file name contains _VTWIMBOOT suffix. (e.g. win11_english_x64_VTWIMBOOT.iso)

Try the latest 1.0.76 release.

Thanks and sorry for the late reply.
That seems to work for me.
The current solution is fine but I would probably have preferred being able to do it via a plugin and using wildcard, for example indicating all iso files containing windows need to boot with WIMBOOT.

Anyway, thanks very much for the quick solution.
