I have always booted from CD/DVD to do imagine/restores with Image for Linux. However, I may need to have the capability to be able to boot from USB. Questions: 1. Does the USB need to be formatted FAT32 or will NTFS be OK? 2. Is there a USB drive size limitation (maximum size) for making an Image for Linux bootable USB? 3. Is it possible to make a 500 GB USB SSD bootable and be able to write to and restore from the USB SSD? The device that I am considering to work with in the near future is a device with Windows 7 as the Operating System and it only has one (1) USB 2.0 port. This USB 2.0 port has to be used for Keyboard/Mouse/USB SSD Drive. I think that it has an SSD Drive for the OS. Windows Explorer the total space as around 73 GB. Currently there is only a non-powered USB Hub available with three USB connections and one optical mouse that can be plugged into this hub. The only keyboard currently is a Windows keyboard. With the limited details that I have given, how would you go about setting this up for imaging? It would not be routine/scheduled imaging. I was thinking cold image rather than installing Image for Windows on it. If I did install Image for Windows about how much disk space does the image for Windows installation use? I think that there is only around 20% free disk space but I don't remember the exact amount. Thanks in Advance.
