Use the GHOST 8 Install to prepare a DOS bootable floppy or CD.

First create a floppy, then use that as an image for the bootable CD using Nero or any of the other burners.

You have to remember that this is BIOS and motherboard dependent, since not all BIOS's handle USB is DOS properly.

Is this for a specific machine or general use ?

Also check out the DUSE set of USB for DOS drivers.


I hope this helps !

It is actually for 12 different laptop & PC's ( I have all the models) which are Dell or IBM. I need either a CD or say a data pen that can boot up the machines so that they recognize and external USB Hard Drive.

Whatever information you require let me know  please
