1) and 2) - wouldn't like to try!! Get anything wrong and you are in real trouble!

3) and 4) - you would need some sort of imageing program (ultraISO or similar) so that the bootable information is fully captured.

If you own an appliance then you are entitled (free of charge I believe) an up to date USB stick when a new version comes out - just ask your Symantec account manager or raise a call with support / customer care so you shouldn't need to make your own.

Do bear in mind that you cannot use a USB stick to upgrade an appliance - it will fully BLAT it!

Hope this helps
