Default Re: Can't boot from USB stick, help!

Alright, I finally came upon a solution!

For some strange reason, and unlike at work, I had to format the USB stick with a HP utility found here:

After that the stick appeared as a boot option under HDDs and was able to be booted from, whereas when formatted with the stock Windows utility it appeared under Removable devices in my BIOS and it wouldn't boot.

I know it's strange, but whew anyway!
