I use Barts boot disk (www.nu2.nu) to network boot and ghost drive images. My company has just bought 100's of new machine with no floppy drives or cd-roms. I can boot from a usb floppy but the bios doesnt support booting from usb cd-roms.

Does anyone know how to take a bootable floppy disk and make a pen drive bootable with an image of the floppy, or just to make a pen drive bootable with network drivers.

Any help in the right direction would SO MUCH be appreciated.

My jump drive that came from Apacer came with software to make a bootable image on it. The only way i can think of to do it would be to somehow make your OS think it is A: then use rawwritewin to send a .img file to it.

Have you considered setting up a Bootp server, and doing a network boot to run ghost from a network share?

This is what I have done at the company I am working for, and it works very well!
