Cut an image onto usb key

By Sozo ·
Howdy all,

I am wondering if someone can help.

Years ago, I used to use ghost to create an image onto cd and image a machine by popping it in and booting.

It has been so long and ghost has changed so much.

I have Ghost 15.0 and I wan to cut an image onto a usb key and image from that.

My system supports booting from usb and I use ultimate boot cd often from usb.


Any suggestions as to the best way to cut an image onto my key and just pop it in to re-image?

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

Sozo

An image is basically just a folder with files.

If you can't create an image directly to a UFD just create it to a folder on the hard drive and copy that over. <br>
I've never tried it so I don't know if that will work or if the Ghost boot disk will recover from a USB stick.

Clonezilla/P.I.N.G.

by ashij In reply to Cut an image onto usb key

Hi! Sozo,

I have recently tried two open source products. Clonezilla and P.I.N.G. Both of these are excellent programs in my opinion and I use to make BMR backups for critical machines. They both can store images to any attached local drive or networked shared (SMB/NFS). I can give you a link for the full details on how to go about making a ghost and preparing a USB key as a boot device with the image on it.
Get this version of Clonezilla(live): http://tinyurl.com/5t2rvt
Here is the documentation: http://tinyurl.com/5ua9lw

Please do test before you use it on a production machine. If you are not sure, don't do anything that can potentially render your computer/server useless.
