What makes a USB flash drive bootable?

A. There are three elements to make a USB flash drive bootable on a system:
The host system must support booting from a USB flash drive. (Please check with your system manufacturer.)
The USB flash drive must support booting in general. (Please check with your USB flash drive vendor.)
The USB flash drive must contain boot/system files. Typically, vendors of USB flash drives that support bootability will provide you with a tool that will make the drive bootable.

Note: The USB-IF is in the process of finalizing a USB bootability specification. Please refer to www.usb.org for further details

- No hard drive. Instead Xbox Next will rely on Flash Memory to save stored games and permanent data. Microsoft will re-evaluate this specification if Sony decides to add a hard drive to the PlayStation 3.
