    Ok getting into serious trouble here. I have the TC1000 and just purchased
    the Sony MPD-AP20U External CD-ROM. I have followed all I can find on
    tabletpcbuzz about making a bootable cd for this drive and I have had no
    luck and have made about 15 coasters. So I tried to use the PXE boot from
    LAN option...I run the machine on a network with Small Business Server as
    the Server OS. I shared my desktop cd-rom...and still no luck...has anyone
    been able to restore their HP from a network boot? Has anyone been able to
    run the restore form a Sony drive?. Any help would be great.

    I had a total crash in February of this year and needed
    to restore for the cd rom as well. I also had a sony
    external drive. According to Compaq, the only drive they
    woud guarentee it to boot from was their own. I tried all
    other avenues and eventually just broke down and bought
    the compaq drive. Of course, it worked like a charm.

  3. Well I solved my own problem. I useed PXE boot to restore my tablet. It
    worked beautifully. Took a while to set up but I was not about to shell out
    money for the compaq drive after I just purchased the ultra cool sony drive.
    If anyone wants to know how I did it...just email me.
