    Trying to find a SIMPLE frigging solution to making a bootable USfriggingB drive!!!!!

    God, searching there is all this bullshit online with this program, and that frigging program and none of it is worth a shit!!!!

    Don't need no damn windows 7 crap on the drive as it will be used to flash a video card.

    Simple is the solution here, so if you ya got something that works shoot it my way.

    ^^^ This. I use these tools to setup my flash drives for mobo BIOS updates. Works perfectly fine. Follow the prompts and you're all set :toast:

    Thanks to everyone that replied!!! I actually used this link and it worked great.

    What I was doing was attempting a flash on a GTX465 PNY video card. Thanks to the above link I was able to get the bootable USB flash drive, and successfully flashed the 465 to a full blown 1280mb GTX470. :rockout::rockout::rockout:
