Rufus 4.5 BETA

Rufus released the Beta 4.5 version of the installer / live usb disk creator.
Here are the changes:

  • Add a new advanced option, that adds runtime UEFI media validation to suitable images (Windows, most Linux)
  • Move the Use Rufus MBR advanced option to a cheat mode (AltA)
  • Fix truncation of VHDX images, as well as a benign error message when writing VHD/VHDX (#2468)
  • Fix support for Linux persistence in some configurations (Mint, Ubuntu 24.04)
  • Fix multiple potential vulnerabilities (with thanks to Mansour Gashasbi)
  • Update internal GRUB to version 2.12
  • Update UEFI:NTFS to latest (now always uses the ntfs-3g driver, rather than the buggy AMI NTFS one)
  • Increase buffer size when copying ISO files, in an attempt to minimize the AMI NTFS UEFI driver bug
  • Improve partition creation handling
  • Don’t display the WUE dialog when a conflicting unattend.xml already exists (#2451)
