Interest in a lower compression iso optimized for USB booting?

Please let me know if that was the issue with using Ventoy.

Thanks, just tested and exactly the same results. Note that none of the ISOs work with Ventoy or dd .. I must be doing something wrong here, or for some reason there's an incompatibility with my USB sticks ..? Puzzling as it is evident it's working for others.

Note I tried with and without the "quiet" and "splasht" (?) and also removing all options .. no difference. It seems to be an issue initializing the display server, maybe the netbook resolution is the problem? They are both the same. Although VB defaults to 800x600 and that works fine?

I will try this today with another netbook with a higher resolution display and see if that makes a difference. This is an Aspire ES1 IIRC .. haven't used it in years .. that one also has EFI capability.

ADDENDUM: Safe video mode results in a successful boot (at least on the original Alpha which I have just tested). If that is acceptable for testing I'll do this. Only thing is, it opens /media/demo/VTOYEFI and the Conman System Tray on startup so I'll have to keep my eyes peeled to see if the icons appear first, on next try.

This initial test was done on the D255E.
