Default list of bootable USB memory sticks? - 01-07-2010, 12:37 AM

Forum Community -
I recall a discussion last year re which USB memory sticks work in the mechdrew/meklort OS X install method on the Dell Mini 9.
I'm using a Kingston 16GB DataTraveler.
Anyone have a tested list of other brands?
Is there a link to this topic?

This is the best forum I have ever belonged to. Wonderful generous people.

SanDisk Cruzer 16Gb - but it's slow. Lexar Jumpdrive Secure II 16Gb (borrowed, reformatted)- faster by far.

I haven't encountered a flash drive that wouldn't allow itself to be made bootable in six or seven different brands/models.
