Ventoy 1.0.55 is already available for download. The program can be used to create bootable USB media from various image formats including ISO, WIM, IMG, and VHD.

  1. Open the ventoy subdirectory of the extracted zip archive.
  2. Create a new text document and name it ventoy.json. Make sure there is no hidden .txt extension.
  3. Add the following content to the file and save it.

“control”: [
{ “VTOY_MENU_TIMEOUT”: “10” },
{ “VTOY_DEFAULT_IMAGE”: “/ISO/debian_netinstall.iso” },
{ “VTOY_FILE_FLT_EFI”: “1” },

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM Setup LabConfig BypassStorageCheck

You need to place the file in the ventoy folder on the first partition of the USB media. Also add the Windows 11 image that you want to use to upgrade a device or install it newly on the same partition. You can use subfolders for images to keep things organized, as Ventoy will scan all folders on the partition for images.

Closing words

Still, if all you want is to upgrade a device to Windows 11, it may be easier to use Rufus or Universal MediaCreationTool to do it.
