I have just made a ghost image that i want to load on a number of machines.

I want to transfer this image to a USB key, then make it automatically launch when the machine boots up from the USB key.
(no problem with the machine booting from USB, new machines with CMOS that has USB bootable device as an option).

What do i need to do to get my USB key bootable, and have it autolaunch the ghost.

Might suggest creating a boot disk, maybe to include network resources if needed, and then ghost the disk. Then apply the ghost image to the thumb drive....
