  1. Download required files from here.
  2. Please note that when extracting files from the zip to make sure you have the "Use Folder Names" option Checked
  3. Install SP27213.exe
  4. Run the installed application
  5. Select appropriate device, file system and volume label
  6. Check Create DOS Startup Disc and then click sub option of "Using Dos System Files Located at"
  7. Select the folder DOS System Files (These are for Win XP Only, for all other OS you will need to download the files from somewhere)you just extracted from the zip
  8. Click Start
  9. Copy Folder GBDF over to USB Device To have Norton Ghost Installed

Warning: This Process will format your USB Device
