【Solved】Install Ventoy to NVMe under Linux

I can't get ./ to install to an NVMe drive under various Linux distributions, though SATA SSD works fine. I suspect it has something to do with the partition names starting with a p, such as p1, p2, etc. where on SATA it only has the number itself, such as /dev/sdb1, sdb2, etc. With NVMe it looks like /dev/nvme1n1p1, nvme1n1p2, etc. Here is the error where it dumps out:

ubuntu@vps:~/ventoy-1.0.21$ sudo ./ -I -r 400000 -s -g /dev/nvme1n1 

      Ventoy: 1.0.21

Disk : /dev/nvme1n1
Model: WDC CL SN720 SDAQNTW-512G-2000 (nvme)
Size : 476 GB
Style: GPT

You will reserve 400000 MB disk space

You will install Ventoy to /dev/nvme1n1.
All the data on the disk /dev/nvme1n1 will be lost!!!

Install Ventoy to /dev/nvme1n1 successfully finished.


I tried booting off the livecd.iso, but it only shows /dev/sda and /dev/sdb (which don't exist) and thus it can't install to them, it says "Failed to access /dev/sdb, maybe root privilege is needed". It doesn't show /dev/nvme0n1 and /dev/nvme1n1 if I hit refresh.
Yes, Nvme is not supported now.
Both the install script and the work script need to be modified.
Is there a way to create and format the two partitions manually? Or a way I can modify the scripts to attempt to install this tonight? Any tips? ;-)
I just update  But I don't have a nvme drive so it's not tested yet.
You can update this script (override the script in the install package) and retry.
Thanks! I'll give it a try. I was able to get Windows Server 2019 core edition installed and that was enough to run the Windows version to do what I was attempting before heading to bed... hehe! The Windows version worked fine on NVMe (using -U of course).
Please try with latest release if possiable

Wow! Quickfix ... how about support for .sblive images? Thanks again for an amazing tool!
