Ventoy – An Open Source & Free All-in-one System Installation Boot Disk Creation Tool

Ventoy is a new bootable USB solution and it is an open source tool to make bootable U disk for ISO/WIM/IMG/VHD(x)/EFI files. With Ventoy, you don’t need to format the USB flash drive repeatedly, you only need to copy the ISO/WIM/IMG/VHD(x)/EFI file to the USB flash drive to start it, no other operations are required. You can copy many different types of ISO/WIM/IMG/VHD(x)/EFI files at once, and Ventoy will display a menu to select (screenshot) at startup. No difference supports Legacy BIOS and UEFI mode. So far, more than 300+ ISO files (list) of various types have been tested. At the same time, the concept of “Ventoy Compatible” is proposed. If supported, any ISO file can be activated theoretically.
