Storing Images on Usb Boot key

Hi everyone,
I have succesfully put an bootcd.iso content to a USB Stick using the "unetbootin" tool. I can boot to a machine a get the Imaging engine to work. But I want to be able to restore an image from this usb key directly. Don't want to use the network or another usb drive.

How can I put an image on this usb stick? There is a "addfiles" directory but when I copy a file in this directory, the boot imaging doesn't see the file at all....

The purpose if doing this is to use imaging in disconnected mode...

We use Imaging 11.3

thank you !

Re: Storing Images on Usb Boot key

do the USB tool allow images to be directly on USB stick?

Yes, though you have to put it there manually.

Re: Storing Images on Usb Boot key

last question: the doc not seems to explain how to put an image on a drive stick. Do you have some hints where I can put the image? directly at the root of the pen? and using a linux system? thank you for your help!

I guess you need a Linux device to being able to se and create the second
partition and copy the zmg files to that partition, makes sense?
