Restoring a tablet PC that has no internal DVD drive. RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    My wife's Toshiba Portege M205 crashed this morning. No problem, thinks I, just restore from WHS.

     

    But it has no internal CD/DVD drive and won't boot from external USB 2.0 drive Sad

     

    I set up a PXE server on my PC using tftpd32.exe (http://home.allegiance.tv/~joem298/), and have shared the restore CD. I can now access the drive from the Toshiba, but I've not been able to convince it to boot.

     

    Anyone know what file or trick I need to boot from the Win Home Server restore CD over the network?

     

    Thanks in advance
