If you choose GPT, that means you will only use it in UEFI mode.

Maybe you can try to install Ventoy manually.
1. create a Part1 and Part2 in the disk in GPT format
2. set Part2 as ESP partition and format it with FAT file system
3. In Ventoy's install package, there is a ventoy/ventoy.disk.img.xz file, xz decompress it to get ventoy.disk.img
    This is a 32MB raw disk img. Get all the content in this img and copy them to Part2

Then you can try it.

Thanks for prompt reply and very helpful it was indeed.

Good to know that you're keeping GPT Format in plan. What I could say is, if you can implement the option for MBR or GPT as per the user's choice, would have been great though.

If he said this is in the plan, that's exactly how he plans to do it. He taught you how to do it now manually and made it explicit that choosing GPT partitioning means giving up booting Ventoy on Legacy BIOS systems
