I have a 4G USB flash drive that I want to divide into two partitions
in order to try to make the USB bootable then.  According to Google
researching,  USB flash drives cannot be partitioned if the drive is
identified as removable media, which it is.  It also says the only
way to partition a USB flash drive is to flip a  'removable bit'  so
that the drive is recognized as fixed media instead which then can be
partitioned like any normal hard drive.  The suggested Lexar 'bootit'
doesn't do it -  for me anyhow.  Anyone care to suggest a different
method to try for this?

Thank you

me
