How do I format my flash drive to FAT16 to make it bootable?

I formatted my flash drive to FAT32 but when I plug it into my newly built computer, it doesn't boot from it. I have tried all USB boot options from FDD to everything else that I can't think of. My guess is that I have to have FAT16. I have read many answers, and they say something about you can only have a flash drive up to 2Gb or 4Gb. I have an 8Gb flash drive. Can I still format it to FAT16? The Windows 7 I have on it is I think either 2-3Gbs.
