Creating a Bootable USB Flash Drive

1 Comment Technology

I spent hours yesterday trying to get my laptop to boot from a USB key. I could probably have burnt 100 bootable CDs with the files on, but I wanted a USB key. So here's how to create one.

  1. Download and extract these files. Included are files for a bootable floppy and a copy of the HP USB disk format utility.
  2. Using the HP format utility (HPUSBFW.exe), check "Create a DOS boot disk" and browse to where you extracted the "DOS files" directory.
  3. That's it!. Automated commands can be run using autoexec.bat
