    All other articles I've seen online and on this site have been utterly useless for information on how to reformat this drive to a standard format. It has to be possible because all it is is a standard usb thumb drive.

    I don't care if it gets rewritten as I've made a copy of it, and besides, if I really need the os to be installed again I'll just take it to the Genius Bar to have it done.

    I'm looking for someone who really knows there stuff with terminal and permissions and all of that stuff to shed a little light on this subject.

    It cannot be done. The drive's hardware has been switched to read only.
