    Had to create a new thread as it wont let me under the main MediCat thread.

    Medicat used to be distributed as an ISO image. It now switched to be distributed as a USB image ".img" and no longer boots when mounted to a Virtual Machine. Tried using Passmark OSFMount to convert from img to iso but it wont boot on the VM.

    Is there anyway to boot a VM using MediCat ?


    Using VMware Workstation 15

    Hi,

    When you opened the Old ISO on Virtual Machine, did allowed you to save changes?


    Thank you.

    "Burn" the .img to a USB stick (32GB or larger) and then you can set VMware to boot from the physical USB drive. I have the best of luck setting VMware to boot from "partitions", and select the NTFS partition of your USB. Also make sure VMware is setup to boot from UEFI, and you should be good to go.

    Would be possible to make and save changes to the Wim that way?


    Exporting / Snapshot or somehow?

    I know Ventoy supports booting from VHD, as long as the VHD file is a set size, and not dynamic. I don't think I understand what else you mean.

    MediCat won't ever be an ISO ever again, but they can feel free to keep updating the old ISO images from 19.10, they're hosted on that "bay" site, and the config files are easy to understand and edit with UltraISO and Notepad++.

    Add NTLite and EasyDISM to the list!

    :D

    Well,
    As if the WIM is dismount, run it on a VM, edited as Live and save the State.

    More flexible than the NTLite, EasyDISM, etc...
