Ventoy Persistence has become discouraging. What have I done wrong.?
#1
If I fail to properly format this post, it can also be seen on Linux Mint forums:

I think I went astray following someone's mistakes on another website. I deleted that link.
Now, I am at a loss after playing with this off and on, for about 2 weeks.

Ventoy Installs and Boots fine, whether the Partition Table is msdos or GPT.
I finally found the -g option and it is now on a GPT Partition Table, Formatted as ext4.

I am at a loss after trying different things, including reinstalling a couple of times.

No Persistence option in the menu.
No Persistence in settings on re-boot.
