    USB Question

    Okay... My professor is gunna give me 10 extra points if I can figure this one out. I've looked around and now I'm resorting to posting.

    Is there anyway to create a bootup disk that will enable a usb connection to a usb harddrive?

    My teacher wants to use a USB hard drive as a ghost drive. The only problem is that its USB. I guess I need to figure out how the USB's are loaded. Any help would be cool. I'm going to continue my search though.

    This disk allows you to start the client computer from a floppy disk, and then clone between two computers that are connected by a USB cable. This disk contains the DOS system files, Ghost files, and files necessary for accessing the USB controller. When you start a computer with this disk, the computer loads DOS system files, USB controller drivers, Ghost files, and then starts Ghost. See the document Ghost compatibility with USB cables.

    Check your BIOS settings. I know many recent BIOS's allow you to boot from an external USB source (such as an exernal CD-ROM drive, hard drive or even USB Zip drive).

    Yes, I would go with the BIOS. I just thought you were looking for a boot disk in specific. If that is the case. The link above will give you specific directions.

    xmaddness let us know if you get the Extra Credit... Do you get 20 points for offering two different methods?
