Installing Easy2Boot or Ventoy on a USB Flash drive always fails!

If you are using a cheap USB flash drive (e.g. 2TB USB 3.0 flash drive which cost $8) then the USB Flash drive is obviously a FAKE!

It may report it’s size as 2TB (or whatever is expected – 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB) but it probably contains only a few GB of slow, faulty flash memory!

Notice the drive is named ‘Flash Disk 3.0’ and not Kingston or SanDisk!
Exactly 2048GB? USB Flash drives always have spare\reserved memory for housekeeping and sector replacement, etc.!

You can test the USB drive by filling it full of mp4 video files and then playing the first and last ones, or you can test the USB drive using FakeFlashTest or H2TESTW. See here for details.

New! Ventoy for Easy2Boot v1.0.97 now released!
