ok long story short, i need to be able to Ghost disk to disk. i want to use my PNY 16GB flash drive and partition it into two slices, first one obviously FAT32 with MBR to boot to and then the second with the .GHO image to pull from. I have tried it seems every software out there and cannot get it partitioned correctly. I have tried using EASEUS but i cannot get it to show up.

i am new at this kind of tinkering so please help direct me on what to do. i really want to learn!

Thanks,
Jason

Why not have it NTFS and put the image on the boot partition?
