I'm using an HP laptop and made a bootable flash key with the Microsoft utility (which I downloaded from Microsoft) to make a Windows 7 installation. I (supposedly) changed the boot order in the bIOS to look first at the key. Didn't work - booted directly into Windows 7 (seemingly bypassed the bootable key).
1. How do I tell if the USB key is bootable?
2. What could have prevented my BIOS from remembering my new boot order?
3. What might be the reason(s) why my laptop won't boot from the USB key?
