I thought this useful tool deserved a thread of its own as it is such a useful tool. Ventoy Updated to Support Local Disk Image Booting Quote Since it’s initial release back in 2020, Ventoy added some nice features such as support for IMG disk impages, support for GPT paritions or bypassing Windows 11 requirements during installation. Today, Ventoy was updated to v1.0.66 and introduces yet another useful feature. The new version of Ventoy gives you the option to boot from local disk images. Found this interesting snippet of information over at funkyspacemonkey.com. Looks like Ventoy is going from strength to strength. more information over at their main site, Ventoy Boot Image Files In Local Disk It seems easy enough to use. You download your .iso then for linux, Quote Create vlnk file for image file in local disk Linux Run sudo bash VentoyVlnk.sh -c xxx.iso in terminal. The vlnk file will be created in the current directory where you run the script. 2.2 Copy the vlnk file to Ventoy USB and boot After vlnk file created, just copy it to Ventoy USB and boot it. You can put the vlnk file in the root or some subdirectory, no difference with normal image files. When you boot the vlnk file it will actually boot the corresponding image file in the local disk. Longpanda's GitHub page has extensive information and guides on all aspects of this fine tool. https://github.com/ventoy Happy distro hopping folks.
