Ventoy tool Live USB try to boot ISO of EndeavourOS 22 (Waiting 30 seconds, rootfs) ERROR

I use this to boot ISO: Ventoy. I tried to run the following distro EndeavourOS (last release).

The partition on the flash drive (D:) is called ‘Ventoy’ and it is there ‘EndeavourOS_Cassini_22_12.iso’. The linux system does not boot when selected.

I have such errors:

[   1.799247] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: pciehp: Cannot get irq -1 for the hotplug controller
[   1.799253] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: pciehp: Notification initialization failed (-1)

I tried changing the name but it didn’t help. Any ideas so I can properly run the live version of this distro?

I would recommend not using ventoy. There seems to be some compatibility issues right now.

If you must use ventoy try launching the ISO in grub mode.

i managed to boot using ventoy, i just mounted /dev/disk/by-id/Ventoy and then i mounted the iso itself from ventoy folder into /run/archiso/bootmnt and did exit a couple times because it first tried to mount it again and failed
i also tried to use ln -s path_to_iso /dev/disk/by-label/EOS_202212 but that didn’t work
hope this helps to solve the issue, cheers
if youre trying to boot it just do

mkdir /run/ventoy
mount /dev/disk/by-label/Ventoy /run/ventoy
mkdir /run/archiso
mkdir /run/archiso/bootmnt
mount /run/ventoy/EndeavourOS-{Your version here} /run/archiso/bootmnt
exit

it might try to mount it again, just do exit again and it should work just fine
