This little tutorial here will show you how to make a bootable USB with Norton Ghost. Why would you want to do that? Norton Ghost is a disk cloning and backup tool that is useful for all sort of emulations and disk creating. We’re going to use a few tools specifically designed which will make the process really easy.
First of all, you’re going to need Format USB, which you can get. Second, we’ll be getting USBOOT Norton Ghost from. Get the files from the archive in the usual manner and place the folders in a convenient space where you can easily access them. Now open Format USB by right clicking and selecting ” Run as administrator “, which may require you to input your password.
Now let me get you a few screen caps to get started. After opening the Format USB tool select FAT32 format, check format device, also check create a DOS start up disk and select from the browser the USB Norton Ghost ” Boot ” folder.

Hold WIN KEY, press R, type MSCONFIG. Click on the Boot tab.
Change the 10 to 3, apply, ok, exit no restart. I wouldn't recommend 0 delay (it can be done, but not thru MSCONFIG). 3 seconds is not obnoxious, but gives you a short time to decide.

Get you the same place. Boot menu is convenient, but thumb would be needed if it won't boot at all. SHIFT+RESTART gets you to the Windows Recovery environment.nothing to do with Macrium. A screenshot of your Disk Management would be needed to see if 26GB is unreasonable. Rule of thumb is you get about a 40% compression at Normal and 60%+ at High.here is the disk manager screenshot. Looks like you have about 26 GB occupied on C. About 124 occupied on D.
About 11 occupied on Recovery. Total occupied circa 161 GB. Excluding D, about 37 occupied. Normally, I'd expect a 26 GB image file to represent anywhere from 40 to maybe 80 or 90 GB of occupied space, but that would vary depending on the type of files on the partitions and the compression level. I wouldn't expect high compression to reduce the image file size much more than medium compression in most cases. Did you include your data partition D in the image?
