    I faced it too. There is a PR on the ventoy GitHub repository that fixes Proxmox boot.

    Let me Google that for you.

    I find ventoy more tedious, because you can't use it on your hard drive with a sane partitioning scheme.

    The only reason is because of how the ventoy detection hardcode the partition boundaries in its checks, and it means Ventoy can only run with the partitions set in a way that may lead to alignment issues like write-amplification: I've detailed that in https://github.com/ventoy/Ventoy/issues/1342

    Ideally I'd have a 10G partition after the EFI (or it could even be the EFI itself) with a few ISOs for rescue purposes + a UEFI entry to avoid having to use a bootable USB, but that's not possible with Ventoy unless I accept Ventoy choices of partition boundaries:

    Ventoy allows you to create a bootable USB containing any number of ISO files just by writing them as files to a partition. It even supports Windows, and has some cool features like overriding Secure Boot on some machines.

    Last but not least there is also Ventoy. Short explanation: Install Ventoy to a usb drive, put all your isos in one folder on that drive. Now when you boot that usb drive you will see the ventoy menu, and it will allow you to boot any of the isos you put in the folder. Very handy.

    Overall, don't be afraid to switch distro (use Ventoy, load a few ISOs just in case), try to make sure you have an easy way of backing up your stuff (be it with a separate /home partition, or like I do with storing everything important in a separate drive and then using symlink to make it 'appear' in their 'default' places), and you can always use VM in a pinch (consult this guide or use quickemu or gnome-boxes)

    I recommend using Ventoy, and drag in the top general distro (Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, Zorin, Manjaro) and the top distro for gaming (Nobara, PopOS, Garuda). If you want to have a user experience similar to SteamOS Desktop Mode, use the KDE version of the distro (Kubuntu, Nobara KDE, Manjaro KDE, Garuda Dragonfire).
