How do I create a Bootable USB Drive with Norton Ghost 2003?

I have lot of images of desktops/laptops that were created using Norton Ghost 2003. In order for me to image any of the desktops/laptops, I have to take the hard drive out of that system and bring it to my main system, connect it and use the Ghost Restore option to use a specific image and restore it on the destination hard drive.

I have a 32GB USB Flash Drive which I would like to use for this operation. I want to boot up the system that needs re-imaging, through my 32GB USB Flash Drive and it should automatically launch Ghost (DOS) and I can point to the correct image and restore it over the C:\ drive of the system that needs re-imaging.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks,

Sam Lakhani

Check out bartPE. This is a PRe-install environment of Windows  that you can install Ghost in and boot to.

That website is down. When I click on the link, after a minute, I get the IE Page Cannot be displayed message.

First, the system you want to deploy ghost image must have usb boot option, if not you might have create bootable ghost image DVD/CD or create ghost boot disk with support USB.

HP has a free utility that will setup a USB stick to boot.  It is reported to work with other manufacturers USB drives.  If it works for you great,  if not here is a detailed step by step to do it yourself manually,

As mentioned though if your system BIOS does not support USB booting there is nothing that can be done and you would have to boot via floppy, cd/dvd etc.
