Ventoy - Best multi-boot tool!
 
Hello fellow Linux users,

In this here post I will be talking about the famous Ventoy USB tool. People have asked me many times what USB tool I use to make bootable Linux drives. Well that should answer that question.

But before I dive deeper into the why I use it over others here some info to get started.

Ventoy creates bootable USB devices using ISO images. That sounds an awful lot like what established programs such as Rufus do at first, but when you realize that it puts the ISO images on the drive and does not extract them, it becomes interesting.

Even better, it is possible to place multiple ISO images on the USB device after it has been prepared by Ventoy; this allows you to boot into different Linux systems or install different versions of Windows straight from a single USB device.
 

 
Ventoy even supports Secure Boot. Other than that it also includes support for changing the filesystem of the first partition (ntfs/udf/xfs/ext2/ext3/ext4), persistence support for various Linux distributions such as Ubuntu or Linux Mint, and support for auto-installation.

Also, since it uses GRUB, naturally, you can theme it. Yeas, you read that correctly, it uses Grub themes, so if there’s a theme you like and use, you can apply it to Ventoy. This tool is my go-to as I have so many ISOs and save me time and frustrations of having to flash a 2gb ISO on one of my 128GB thumb drives wasting space in the process.

I absolutely love this thing. It’s actively being updated. Adding more features, fixing others, and baking in support for more Distros. Just make sure to update USB stick after updating the app itself, coz updating the app alone does not magically update USB.. You will have to do that yourself via a small terminal command. Click button below to visit site, read documentation.

Note : Ventoy is available as an optional tool in XeroLinux, so no need to download from official site, or if you are on a different Arch-based distro just grab it from AUR otherwise I think it’s available on Debian repos.
