Transfer your boot floppy to an USB drive

As you see more servers and workstations being delivered without a floppy drive but support the feature to boot from USB drive though.

HP supplies a tool which is called the 'HP Drive Key Boot Utility' that transfer our boot floppy to that USB device, you can download this utility here.

The USB device can be formatted as a floppy or as a hard drive and made bootable using this utility. When formatted as a floppy, the drive key will look like a bootable USB floppy that is 1.44MB. When formatted as a hard drive, the drive key will be bootable with the full capacity of the device and can be used to flash system ROMs or boot existing floppy images.
