I would like to make a flash drive bootable and I have looked at the utility that HP has called USB Disk Storage Format Tool and every place I have looked to find how to install and use it, the instructions that I have seen do not show up for me when I run the program. Has anyone used the tool or know where I can get some good instructions on how to create the flash drive.

Thanks!

You might also want to try Hiren's boot cd and the program rufus. If you want to create a USB boot drive that you can actually run to use as a tool for troubleshooting a system they are a great way to go. Here is a link to a video on youtube I made describing how to create the drive.
