I have a Toshiba Protege M200 tablet PC and I am trying to do a clean
install on it. My problem is that the M200 does not come with a CD/DVD
drive. I have a CD/DVD drive attached via a USB cable but it is not
recognized as bootable (a known problem with the M200 with no fix).
Here are the different potential boot methods I have available to
me:

Did Toshiba not provide you with a recovery method - possible a hidden
partition on the drive to allow you to restore it to as shipped from the
factory ?
This is the recommended method as this will contain all the necessary
drivers etc for the specific devices in the Toshiba OEM device.
This would all be covered in the documentation that was supplied with the
device.
Any other installation of an OS will place you outside fo the Toshiba
support infrastructure. (it is also on the Toshiba web site)

Here are the different potential boot methods I have available to
me:

(1) PXE boot via this method:
PXE Boot M200
(2) SD memory card using Toshiba utility. The Toshiba utility lets me
take any floppy disk image up to a size of 2.88mb and make it
bootable on the SD card. If I have a 512mb SD card the remaining
memory becomes my C drive and I am able to read the files that are
stored on it.
(3) Compact Flash memory card via a PCMCIA adapter. There is an option
to make it the first boot device but I have not figured out how to
make the compact flash card bootable.

So what would be the easiest way to do a clean install of Windows XP
Tablet PC 2005 edition on my M200 laptop with oen of the above 3 boot
methods? I could potentially use DOS usb CD-ROM drivers to be able to
see the CD Rom drive after booting the system using one of the three
above methods.

Thank you in advance for any help provided!
