I am having a bit of an issue here with my Tablet.  I don't have the docking station and I need to be able to boot from some sort of external device so I can throw in a bigger HD.  

I've tried booting from a standard USB CDROM but nope.

So the question is, how do I put the image on the new HD if I can't boot off an external device?

Anyone done this before w/o the docking station?
