    Hi

    we use floppy disks to boot computers when creating/restoring images. could do with getting rid of the huge mountain of disks. is there a step by step guide anywhere that can explain how I can go about creating a bootable USB ghost disk?

    Thank-you

    Below is a quick run through of how to make a bootable USB stick for ghost....

    make a set of bootable floppys with ghost 8.5 and check they boot the machine into ghost
    install the HP Drive Key Boot Utility on your PC
    insert pen drive run hp app as follows
    1st screen next
    2nd select pen drive letter next
    3rd screen leave default next
    4th screen leave default next
    5th screen leave default next
    it will now format
    then offers
    HP firmware
    or floppy (chosse floppy)
    insert your 1st ghost floppy and enter names (doesnt matter what you call it)
    It will now create the image boot file from the 1st floppy
    Click finish
    Now install win image
    start win image click file open navagte to your pen drive it will pick up a img called whatever you named it in the hp util
    select it and it will open and you will see the files in it.
    Insert ghost floppy 2
    the clickImage from the tool bar in win image change format and change to 2.88
    now select the ghost folder inside the image pain then from the tools menu select inject and you want to inject the
    ghost.exe file from the 2nd ghost floppy then save in winimage and you are done.
