Approved USB Keys for vSphere ESX U1 on BL685c G1

We're currently running ESX 3.5 on BL685c G1 blades and are going to upgrade to ESX 4 U1. I'm planning to install the host OS onto a USB key using the blade's internal USB port. Which USB keys are supported by HP for this?

Thanks

but note your server does not support SD card option
