In Ventoy you don't have to convert your .iso file, you just copy it on the the USB key.
Solus is working with Ventoy: https://www.ventoy.net/en/isolist.html

+1 for this. Would be really nice to have in the repos.

+1 for me as well. It's a nice and easy program that requires less knowledge compared to WoeUSB et al. You just copy your iso images into the USB stick and you're done, the Ventory bootloader does the rest.

It seems to be a pain to package: its build system is unorthodox. You are warned.

For one thing, Solus works absolutely perfectly with Ventoy in every instance I've tried. Not to say that it should be marked as officially supported or anything, but I've also never seen it fail. Ventoy is awesome.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
