gHack's Ventoy article


The new Ventoy version improves the installation of Microsoft's Windows 11 operating system further. The main improvement in the new release enables two Windows 11-specific bypass options by default.



VTOY_WIN11_BYPASS_CHECK -- this bypasses the hardware compatibility checks that Windows 11 performs during installation of the operating system. Ventoy creates several Registry keys to bypass checks for TPM, CPU, Secure Boot and RAM during setup of the operating system. The feature was introduced in Ventoy 1.0.55, but it had to be enabled manually by the user.

[*]VTOY_WIN11_BYPASS_NRO -- this bypasses the online account requirement of Windows 11. Users may set up a local account during installation of the operating system instead.



Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let's sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again

    I own too many laptops: A Dell touch screen with Windows 11 and 6 others (not counting the other four laptops I bought for this household.) Being a PC builder I own many desktop PCs as well. I am a father of five providing PCs, laptops, and tablets for all my family, most of which I have modified, rebuilt, or simply built from scratch. I do not own a cell phone, never have, never will.

Yes, it is a clean install.
