I went looking for an alternative to Ventoy that is not intrinsically tied to the Hundred Acre Wood. (Of all the things to use from this source, an OS bootloader/installer is absolutely insane.) It is difficult to find a good alternative, but it does exist by combining other projects.
- Grab Super Grub2 Disk and flash it to a USB (such as via Rufus).
- Extend the SG2DISOS partition to a modest size (not the entire drive) and fill the BOOTISOS folder with Linux ISOs.
- On the main SG2DBOOT partition: rename
/EFI/bootto something like
/EFI/gruband install rEFInd by copying its files to
- Create FAT32 partitions (one each) sized according to any Windows or non-Linux UEFI ISOs you want available. Copy the contents of the ISOs to the partitions.
You can then boot to rEFInd and via that choose either a non-Linux ISO or Grub. Via Grub, you can choose a Linux ISO.
