Just switched to Ventoy today! Except Kaspersky Rescue disk and ParrotOS Home(customized ISO) everything works fine!

That's good :) both of them support it

ISO list

a few months ago I put Jailbreak boot ISO into Ventoy (install JB on iPhone) i was surprised it was working fine, i think i buy a new flash drive like 64GB or 128GB soon
