I am trying to create and deploy images (winXP) using a Corsair Flash Voyager 8gb flash drive, I am using Ghost version 8.3 could use some help on getting this drive to accept and deploy images, this was done before using the same drives but were completely formatted by a disgruntled "former" employee.

I have no problem getting the machine "syspreped" and the machines do in fact pick up the USB drive as a startup option.

We had an individual who was able do do the whole process using a flash drive, once the machine was syspreped, it was shutdown and restarted and after selecting the USB drive at startup you could pull the image to the USB drive and deploy it to any machine.

What I can tell you is that the usb drive must be the bucket to save the image and the bucket to deploy the images from. Floppy Drive letter - A: Hard Drive letter - C: Optical Drive letter - D: USB Drive letter - E:?

In other words, as long as the bios assigns a drive letter to the usb drive, you should be ok..

Hope that helps.

Have you done this before with this exact drive?
Is the primary partition on the USB drive set to active?
Is the USB drive formatted with the System files option?
Did you fdisk the master boot record?

Yes, well, I did not but it was done by another person on the exact drive.

Not sure, how is that done?
Is the USB drive formatted with the System files option?
Again, not sure.
Did you fdisk the master boot record?
And once again, not sure.

Sorry for the lack of knowledge on my part.
