I need to create a bootable USB drive to load the HP DMI Utility.  I replaced a system board and evidently I need to update the information about the new system board.

I need to load the DMI Utility onto the flash drive and make it bootable.

I don't want to program a computer for Windows 7.  I just need a bootable USB flash drive to update the system board configuration.  I installed a new system board and HP has a DVI utility that will automatically update the configuration of the computer.  I have to place that program on a bootable USB flash drive.
