Download this, and extract the Win10 version of the ventoy_vhdboot.img to the ventoy folder on the USB. Then Ventoy can see it.

I'm back after upgrading my NVME key with the new VHD from Jayro and Win11!

First and as usual thx for your hard work, you deserve it! And BRAVO for this new release...

But i've got a little issue, that i didn't have with the WIN10 version of the VHD.
I resized my VHD image with vhd resizer in order ton expand the main partition into it, but the problem is that i have the UEFI partition in the middle... and it prevent me to use my unllocated space with the main partition into my VHD file ...

Is there a way to manage them ?

Thx

I tried and it's the same......I put both file medicat vhd and ventoy_vhdboot.img on the root of my usb drive and didn't work
ventoy_vhdboot.img goes in the ventoy folder, not on the root of the USB.

You should be able to slide the UEFI partition to the end of the drive, and then expand it normally.

Hi,

I just tried with Windows disk management and AOMEI Partition Assistant and they didn't let me slide anything ...

God damn!!

If anyone had an idea.

By deleting the MediCat VHD partition (files should be backed up next to it), then recreating a partition with all the unallocated storage.

Hello.

Thank you for your hard work on this project. The medicat USB is the best of all the bootable repair utilities I've tried over the years and I am excited to try out the VHD version/add-on as well.

Unfortunately, I cannot get the magnet link (magnet:?xt=urn:btih:7186B83D09DEA33AECAD2C422EFAC31E37B7048B as of the time of writing) to function on my torrent client (rTorrent. I've used both rUtorrent and Flood to try and add it.) and it just sits there never downloading the meta file and beginning. Is there any chance of me getting a .torrent file? That worked for medicat USB so I was hoping it could be an option for medicat VHD as well.

Thank you.

Did the 21H2 version get finished or just skipping? If skipping what was previous version and where can I get it?
Thanks for this tool. Just found it. It works great.

Technically, Microsoft is treating the Windows 11 builds as 21H2, but no... I didn't release one. I jumped from 20H2 right to Windows 11, and the next version will be Windows 11 RTM.

Do you have any idea when you'll release it?
Whenever Microsoft releases the Windows 11 RTM build and it's put on the internet, I'll grab it and have a build ready next day. But until the RTM has a release date, then I'm afraid I don't have one either.
