How would you go about telling if a flash drive is bootable? Besides trying it of course.

I don't believe you will know until you try. Generally, the crappy cheap ones will not be. Mid to High range ones will.

You think a Sandisk Cruzer would be bootable?

Yeah, it probably would. I have a 1GB Sandisk RUF2-E, and its bootable.

Update:
I ended up choosing This. Cheap price and free shipping with the other items I was ordering anyways.
I am always curious how things went for others or what they decided on, so I try to update my threads with my decision.
