getting "media is write protected. format cannot be completed"
Using what? Is this just a normal USB thumb drive? Is there is "read-only" switch on it like on SD cards? Are you using the suggested HP tool (which also repartitions the drive)?

You`re not selecting the correct download button to get the HP utility, it isn`t the red button, it`s the blue button underneath it. That will take you to the download page. On the right side of the page you will see "Download Locations" in blue, choose your location to download from, and click on it.
