Boot from VHD
#14
@Midas OK, thanks for the reply above. However, maybe you thought something differently. I understood your point, here's the rephrased question with more info:

Say, I have a USB3 HDD case with a blank HDD in it. Then, I install ventoy on it, copy over the vhd and required files and take it to a system that does NOT have any version of windows installed on any of its disks. Will I be able to just plug it in, choose to boot from it in bios boot menu and it works normally? Or does it need other support files from existing windows installation on the PC to successfully boot off the vhd? (What I know is, windows's officially supported vhd boot through its own managed bootloader requires an existing install and files on the particular system; ventoy's way may be different, hence the question.)

Another issue:
However, I normally use a GPT ventoy key and boot in UEFI mode on my different systems. Your guide uses the normal bios mode (no instruction of enabling EFI boot in vbox vm settings was given) for vbox image creation. So, will I be able to boot such a vhd on all my systems as I mentioned? Will this work on non-efi supported OS vhds like win7?

Thanks in advance.
