burning HP ISO images to flash drive



When using "default" utility - "HP USB key Utility", version 1.7 - process of burning is always slow, now trying to burn new SPP - lasts hours.

There are a lot of other utilities, for example "Rufus ISO", seems to fastest, - same SPP was about 2-3 minutes, but when booting this flash drive, always got strange errors, like "Can not find kernel image vesamenu.c32" and such.

Any suggestions ?

USBKey Utility 1.7 cannot process the current 2015.04 SPP because it is too large.


Use Version 1.8 (32-bit) or better version 2.0 (64bit) from the SPP ISO.


Version 1.8:



Version 2.0:
