How do I create an IFL USB flash drive? The only instructions I have say to run makedisk.exe to create the installation media.

It's similar to creating a BIBM UFD. Run makedisk.exe in the IFL folder. Try this...

double click makedisk.exe, next
Traditional- You have control over options. (Custom), next
dot in I accept the agreement, next
no ticks in the two ini, next (this screen might not be present)
Global Geometry----tick in Align Partitions on 1MiB Boundaries, next
Miscellaneous Global Options, no selections, next
Additional ifl.ini Options, no additions at present (I use TimeZone=AUS-10;ISO8601=1), next
Name and Product Key for V3, next
Normal Boot, next
Normal Boot, next
BIBM Licensed Name, Product Key
For additional options I use TimeZone=AUS-10;GlobalGeoAlign2K=1;ISO8601=1 but you can leave it blank
Using a UFD
USB Layout... Partition - FAT/FAT32 partition
Geometry Calculation Method... Use Device
Finish

There is every chance that it will. You may have to reboot a couple of
times. Virtual certainty that it will.
