It is more licensing problem. If you have any Windows XP home or box profesional, you will be asked to activate windows after restoring from image. XP prof VL will not ask you, but you should have valid license.

I don't worry about the licensing at this point.  How can i make this .GHO file a bootable disk?  I have ultraiso premium.

You can boot via Hirams boot cd/dvd - you can download that via the net, google it.
Or boot via usb pen drive with virtual os, have ghost on it, then access a usb or network drive and access your image.
