you need:
HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool ( SP27608.zip )
Win ME Bootdisk files (bootme.zip )
any usbstick

Create a Bootable USBstick
1. Run "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool"
2. Select you usbstick as Device
3. Select FAT as File system
4. Volume name "BOOT98SE"
5. Select Quick Format (besure to copy any importal files off you usbstick!)
6. Select Create a DOS startup disk
7. unzip the bootme.zip and point "Using DOS system files located at" to the unzipped folder with files inside
8. Then start
9. Now it should be done, you wont see any files on the usbstick as they are in the boot sector

Flash the MB BIOS
1. Download you bios files from motherboard manufacturer
2. Unzip it
3. Copy the files to your usbstick
4. Let the usbstick be in the port
5. Go into bios, then in boot priority
6. Select usb flash disk in removable or in hard drive as first boot device
7. Now save and reboot
8. Now you should get "Starting Windows Millenium Emergency Boot"
