PartedMagic-2020-05-20.iso does not boot fine in Bios mode on version 1.0.13 , can't find PMAGIC_2020_05_20.SQFS

 

PartedMagic-2020-05-20.iso boots fine in UEFI mode on version 1.0.13

 

PartedMagic-2020-05-20.iso was previously booting fine on Bios or UEFI on version 1.0.12

I had to resize the small Ventoy partition because 32mb was too small for fat32, I resized it to 64, still no go. 64mb efi partition btw works fine for E2B. Right now, I resized the 1st partition and created a new 500mb fat32 partition with the Ventoy files. Still no go. I also tried using grubfm installer from here, https://github.com/Q...rubfm-installer, nothing even shows up when booting.Would you consider making a minimalist version of E2B using agfm? Does agfm require any file to be contiguous?

The only thing a BIOS should be looking at is the MBR, PBRs - and for UEFI the \EFI\BOOT folder.

So a minimal agFM would just be the file \grubfmx64.efi which has been copied to the FAT partition as the file \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi.

Just the one file is all that is needed to boot to agFM.

What about Ventoy-1.0.14? I test it on my laptop and it works fine with 1.0.14.

Just tested on v1.0.14 on Bios mode.

 

PartedMagic-2020-05-20.iso does not boot fine in Bios mode on version 1.0.13, and also on 1.0.14, same message:

 

can't find PMAGIC_2020_05_20.SQFS

 

I had to go back to v1.012 wich boots fine on Bios or UEFI.

 

Best Regards

It's looking Ventoy currently not like PTN3 ? Will be nice if we can keep Ventoy files in pre existing FAT32 PTN3....
 
PTN1- NTFS - ISOs, Payloads etc...
PTN2- FAT32 - agFM
PTN3- FAT32 - VENTOY
 
Please provide an option in Ventoy tool so that we will be able to extract Ventoy files directly in PTN3 of existing Multi Partitioned USB Drive without formatting it....Does latest version of Ventoy support PTN1 as NTFS ?
 
Regards...

There is a problem when running parted magics secure erase feature for ATA drives when booting PM from a ventoy usb.

Parted Magic will boot just fine, it will allow you to secure erase NVMe drives, Sanitize ATA Devices, but when you click on Secure Erase ATA drives nothing happens and the menu to select which drive does not appear.

 

So to test PM I made a PM usb using rufus, ATA secure erase works fine.

Then made a E2B with alives grub2 file manger booted PM with default iso extension and secure erase worked fine, rebooted with alives grub2 file manger and selected the ventoy boot option and secure erase on ATA drives would not work.

 

So I rebooted the ventoy usb and selected the grubfm_multiarch.iso, selected PM with partnew option and all worked good.

 

It is only the secure erase of ATA drives that does not work, I can see the drives and their contents with PM file manager.

 

Tested with 

Ventoy 1.14, 1.13

 

2 different USB drives

 

pmagic_2020_02_23.iso

pmagic_2019_09_03.iso

 

Any ideal when this is happening.
