In disk management itself, right click on the usb drive's partition and format.

If disk management creates a fuss, try using the HP disk format tool.

Plug it into your computer and just format it normally.

Navigate to My Computer and right click the USB. There should be a format option.

See if this helps:

Try following this Tutorial: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Omit Step 10 and finish with Step 16. Note that Step 7 may take some time to complete. Please be patient. You might be better off omitting the quick option in Step 11 (in other words, just use format fs=ntfs).
