I see from this file, version 126.96.36.199 is required to put SPP on a bootable USB thumb drive. Searching only comes up with version 188.8.131.52. Where can version 184.108.40.206 be downloaded from? Version 220.127.116.11 does not work to create the bootable USB for SPP. I did see a post that suggested putting the SPP to DVD then run the USB Key Creator Utility, I'd like to skip that step.
Installing from a USB key ------------------------- Complete the following steps to flash the HDD firmware using a USB Key: 1.Download the ISO image of the SPP 20xx.xx.x (Where xx.xx.x is the latest version of the SPP) on a temporary directory from HP.com. 2.Download the HP USB Key Creator Utility Version 18.104.22.168 or later on a temporary directory. (HP USB Key Creator Utility is available on the HP Support & Drivers web site on HP.com) 3.Run the HP USB key Creator Utility to create the USB key with the SPP . 4.Boot from the newly created USB key.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I guess the referencing TXT file is incorrect about version 126.96.36.199 of the HP USB Key Utility being able to create a bootable USB drive. After installing version 188.8.131.52 of the HP USB Key Utility I'm still getting an error:
This CD/DVD does no support USB Key creation from an ISO file. Please use physical CD/DVD media to create the USB Key.
Any hopes for an updated HP USB Key Utility that will do this directly?

Thanks for the sanity check. After further troubleshooting, uninstall, reinstall, mount the ISO etc....I thought to re-download - where I see:
These are SPP non-bootable subsets which support current DL, ML, and SL platforms, for the OSes specified.
I'm a chucklehead, I didn't notice that the Windows only is NON- Bootable. I need to download the 1.5 Gig file, I was thinking I could just get the 537 MB Windows only, originally.
