From Making Ghost 9 recovery disk on bootable USB?:
I recently bought an ASUS Eee PC 1000H. Lacking an optical drive I
wanted to be able to boot my Norton Ghost 9.0 recovery environment
from a USB stick. I assume the recent flood of these ultra mobile PC's
will cause a renewed interest in this topic.
Here are the steps to make a bootable Ghost 9.0 Recovery USB stick or
SD card (works just as well with the builtin SD card reader of the
Format the stick using the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool (Google
will easily locate this free utility for you). No need to use the
"Create a DOS startup disk" functionality in this case, the partition
on the memory stick will be marked active for boot anyway.
Copy the folder \I386 from the Ghost 9.0 Disk onto the memory stick
and rename it to \minint
Copy the file \minint\NTDETECT.COM to the root folder of the memory
Copy the file \minint\SETUPLDR.BIN to the root folder and rename it to
NTLDR (without an extension)
If necessary install required Windows 2000 drivers. I copied the two
files from the Eee support DVD, found in \Drivers\LAN\Atheros\Win2k
into the memory stick folders \minint\INF and \minint\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS
and Ghost activates the builtin LAN adapter of the 1000H.
You're done! Boot from the USB stick.
As a side note, except for the formatting part, the same procedure can
be used to boot Ghost9 from an external harddrive containing an NTFS
partition. That allowed me to put the Ghost9 restore environment
together with the actual backup itself onto a single 2.5'' drive in a
USB enclosure. Now that is what I call a portable backup solution! In
contrast to memory sticks, the normal Windows Local storage disk
management console (under Administrative Tools) allows to mark
partitions on external harddisks as active. So no need for the HP
format utility in this case.
