Ventoy: create a multi-system bootable USB drive easily
Ventoy allows you to create bootable USB and adding ISO files just by copying them to the USB.
Download and decompress the appropriate Release file.
ventoy-<version> folder, run (with superuser privileges):
./Ventoy2Disk.sh -i <device name> # ./Ventoy2Disk.sh -i /dev/sdb
- Run the appropriate
VentoyGUIfile (with superuser privileges).
- Select your USB drive and press ‘Install’.
Adding image files
Copy image files (ISO, IMG, etc.) to the newly created partition on your USB (the biggest one, remember to mount it).
# lsblk output, in this case sdb1 is the partition you need to mount. sdb 8:16 1 14.4G 0 disk ├─sdb1 8:17 1 14.4G 0 part └─sdb2 8:18 1 32M 0 part
Boot the USB
You can boot your computer from the USB as usual. Ventoy will show a list with all image files. Select one and it will automatically boot that system.
