Ventoy is an open-source tool to create a bootable USB drive for ISO/ WIM/ IMG/ VHD(x)/ EFI files. Using this application, you don’t need to format the disk over and over, you just need to copy the ISO/ WIM/ IMG/ VHD(x)/ EFI files to the USB drive and boot them directly.

You can copy many files at a time and Ventoy will give you a boot menu to select them. The app supports x86 Legacy BIOS, IA32 UEFI, x86_64 UEFI, ARM64 UEFI, and MIPS64EL UEFI in the same way. Also it supports the most type of OS (Windows/ WinPE /Linux/ ChromeOS/ Unix/ VMware/Xen…)

Ventoy is composed of many open-source projects and some code developed by myself. All the code developed by myself follows GPLv3+ License. For these open source projects, some I modify their source code, and for some, I directly use their libraries or binaries. All the modified codes follow the same license as the project itself.
