The best way to boot DOS ???

Hi markm,

thank you for your replay, i have tryed such a solution also.
This is a good solution, but you have to create a extra partition on your USB-Stick, and if you are update Ventoy, in my opinion this Partition get lost, right ???
In my opinion, a vhd will be the best solution, or boot from a img, but both of them seem currently impossible.
But maybe in future someone find a solution. :-)
Best regards,
Martin.

@longpanda,

maybe you have a solution, to mount a filesystem (.img, .vhd, ....) before loading a DOS-ISO.
That would be so great, i am sure there is a way, but i don´t know how.

Second and in my opinion better solution:

Maybe someone can create a vhd, in the vhd it will be start grub4dos, and after this, dos will start from the same vhd. (i am not sure, if this is possible with a fat16/fat32 partition)

I am curious if anyone has a solution. Cool
