Legacy BIOS doesn't boot with exFAT
I created my first Ventoy USB stick the other day, and while everything worked perfectly in UEFI, it just wouldn't boot in Legacy BIOS. I tested in VMware, VirtualBox, and my actual system and i got the same result with all of 'em... a blinking cursor on the top left of the screen.

I couldn't figure out what the issue was.. tried everything but still won't boot. In the end i decided to reformat the main ventoy partition with NTFS instead of exFAT, and hoped i got lucky... lo and behold it now boots successfuly with legacy BIOS!

Anyone know why it doesn't boot with exFAT? Btw i have a 2GB reserve partition formatted as FAT32, not sure if that made a difference.
