Creating bootable disk for RedHat Linux 5 on Proliant DL385P G8

May I know how do I created a bootable USB disk for my RHEL linux? I've downloaded the ISO file but seems like the server doesn't recognize the file & can't boot to USB drive.

I've also tried using the USB Key Utility tool but it's throwing the below error

'This CD/DVD does not support USB key creation from an ISO file. Please use physical CD/DVD media to create the USB Key'

Any idea how to proceed? I do not have any other CD/DVD from this server as it's quite an old server.

You can mount the ISO image using iLO Virtual Media if you have the iLO advanced license or a trial license installed.  Depending on CPU, the minimum RHEL version supported on that system is 5.7 or 5.8

Nope, the solution they provided isn't workable. Once I created the bootable USB, the server won't boot into it when I choose boot from USB key through the boot menu,

This particular server I have doesn't have any iLO license hence I can't mount iLO virtual media. 

Not sure if I still can get a trial iLO license for this server.
