[How To] Make a bootable USB Drive
« on: Monday, May 31, 2010, 14:31:47 PM »
This is great for flashing a BIOS or running various DOS programs. This How-To is stolen and modified from http://www.biosflash.com/bios-boot-usb-stick.htm

Download:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/464376/headshot/Downloads/USB_Boot.7z

Extract "USB_Boot.7z" to your desktop.
Run "HP_USB_Boot_Utility.exe" and install the program, a shortcut will be made on your Desktop.
Running the program will look like this:

As a file system, we choose FAT-32 and put a checkmark next to Create a DOS startup disk.
Now give the path to the unzipped folder (usbdos folder on your desktop).
Finally, click on Start and wait for the program to format the USB stick and copy the operating system files.
Now it is bootable! You can drop all kinds of DOS programs on it to run. You may have to edit some BIOS options in order to boot from a USB drive.

*EDIT*
Forgot the download link. :P

It's like shaving your pubes to make your junk look bigger.
Might look bigger, but it aint.....

Thank you for this.
Will surely come in handy, I reckon.
