SPP Requires HP USB Key Creator Utility Version 1.7.0.0 - Download??

[ Edited ]

I see from this file, version 1.7.0.0 is required to put SPP on a bootable USB thumb drive. Searching only comes up with version 1.6.0.0. Where can version 1.7.0.0 be downloaded from?  Version 1.6.0.0 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.

 

Thanks,

Dan Foxley

I guess the referencing TXT file is incorrect about version 1.7.0.0 of the HP USB Key Utility being able to create a bootable USB drive. After installing version 1.7.0.0 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,

Dan

I'm not seeing your error message. With v1.6 I was able to select the SPP .iso image and transfer it to a key

Jimmy,

 

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.

Glad you got it working. I myself hadn't noticed the subset versions were not bootable
