These are the instructions on how to save or read an image using a USB drive (when there is no network connectivity to an imaging server):

1) Boot machine using bootcd and choose "Manual Mode"
2) Once at the command prompt, connect an external USB drive, formatted with NTFS file system.
3) Find the name of the inserted usb drive by running 'fdisk -l' (it is usually /dev/sdb1)
4) Create a folder: mkdir /myusb
5) Mount the usb device to the folder: mount /dev/sdb1 /myusb
6) Run 'img' to take/restore the image.
7) Choose the destination of the image as 'Local'
8) Under the path to the image archive, set it to: /myusb/.......
9) Once done taking/restoring the image, go back to the command prompt and unmount the usb drive: umount /myusb

Use the same steps above to take or restore the image.
