+ My newest standalone creation "Jayro's Lockpick" is joining MediCat USB! It takes every Password Reset boot disk for resetting Windows user accounts and combines them all into one simple and easy to use WinPE boot disc. You're presented with a simple menu, with all the best password reset tools at your disposal once it's fully booted. Note: "Passcape Reset Windows Password" is packaged a little differently, so it takes longer to load than the rest... Please be patient with it.
+ "Linux vDisk Boot" plugin has been added to ventoy_grub.cfg, so you can use the F6 GRUB menu to boot your fixed-size Linux disk file. (VHD, VDI, and RAW formats are supported. VHDX and dynamic disks are not supported.). The default example script was pasted in, and can be edited to your liking. I left it intact so it can be used as a reference. Read this to know more: _vtoyboot.html
+ "DUD (Driver Update Disk)" Plugin has been added to ventoy.json. Some linux distros provide a DUD mechanism. Give a Driver Update Disk image file and set some boot option during boot. Then the driver can be installed before disk scan. And hardware manufacturers generally also provide DUD images that conform to the corresponding distro requirement. The default example script was pasted in, and can be edited to your liking. I left it intact so it can be used as a reference. Read this to know more: _dud.html

This will create a basic bootable floppy disk. Unfortunately,it won't allow you to do much. To perform any system tasks, youwill need a few of the utilities that DOS / Windows provides.These are separate executable files and will be stored one of twoplaces: DOS: Usually in C:\DOSWindows 9x: In X:\WINDOWS\COMMAND, (where X is the letterof the drive the operating system is installed on.)
Almost everyone who has worked with computers for any length of time at all has run into at least one situation in which a problem left a PC unbootable. What if you could return the machine to a bootable state just by inserting a USB flash drive though? Believe it or not, it is actually possible to install a bootable copy of Windows XP onto a flash drive and then boot a PC off of the flash drive. From there, you can use applications that you have installed on the flash drive (anti virus, anti spyware, disk repair, etc.) to fix the PC's problem. In this article, I will show you how. 2b1af7f3a8
