Ghosting a Tablet with XPE

Posted on 2005-04-08

I have a tablet.

it has xp embedded on it.

it has no cdrom but we can put a pcmcia card in it.

before to ghost we would put a cd into the drive and it would boot, connect to the network and bingo we could ghost it.

How would I do it now without no cdrom drive.  is it possible to use a usb key as a boot device?

I know that the head ghost unit could install a virt partition on the unit and we could ghost that way I think?

What options are available?

    Accepted Solution

    Run a PCMCIA CD-ROM drive
    Run a USB drive

    Both of these are viable boot options depending on the BIOS versions.  Both can be purchased for under $40 as well.
