Hello forum members,
I have a question (or few) for booting a windows 7 ISO from a Ventoy prepped USB 3 SSD..please take 'note' that i am a novice/noob when it comes to booting SSD with Ventoy ,Clover EFI or other USB boot managers in general ; How may i add windows 7 iso so that it will boot to the windows setup environment without errors(i have heard that running a Ventoy VHD plugin may work for a "VHD" version of windows setup iso but i am unsure how to do this procedure;also winsetupfromusb app has "IMDISK" ram-disk app capabilities that ventoy does NOT so i am even more confused... ...maybe it is not needed in Ventoy ??)
My PC has the following features to help fimd a solution to this external SSD boot drive dilemma:Gigabyte F2A88X
AMD chipset motherboard with AMD A8 APU...which seems to NOT recognize some of the PCI/PCIE cards(VIA 3.0 USB PCIe card,Protonix USB 2.0 PCI card) and other quirks...
I have had very good luck using the aforementioned Winsetupfromusb with any USB drives with less than 64 gb of storage space...but now am interested in using a new 12 TB SSD that came partitioned with six 2 TB partitions!!
Thanks in advance for any all helpful replies/comments!!
