first that is because the flash drive size required is 32gb minimum for you to create one....
second, you will have to download a specific software first so you can create a recovery flash media.

That's funny because the HP recovery manager clearly states "Minimum 12GB capacity required". on my brand new dm1z. Just shelled out $30 for a 16 gigs USB stick (SanDisk, btw, but still having the same problem).
Not sure what you mean by "specific software" since the recovery manager seems to be onboard...

i gave up on the flash drive backup.
and went with the four disc option - a pain and space consuming - like, unportable.
now, is it possible to transfer the four discs to a flash drive???

Good question. I supppose you could create ISOs and put them on your USB stick, but of course you would still need to be able to create the discs from the ISOs on a separate machine. I know there are some nifty (but dangerous) unix tools out there for creating and transferring disc images, but I don't have the experience to offer practical advice.
Question, though: How did you end up creating the discs? Do you have a burner on your machine?

Good idea if the computer comes with an optical media drive.
After some (re)searching, I finally got lucky with this:
It looks like a utility that doesn't complain if you're using it on an HP model it was not designated for (I have a strong feeling that it won't work with non-HP models, though). I'm currently 25% through my recovery creation process and will post again if I run into any problems.
Thanks for your help, everyone!
