Does anyone know how to install the recovery OS on a LitePad with a new HDD. The old HDD is dead and the SysID is not available off of it. The recovery CD errors during install. I have read that the drive may need to be initialized with a system ID. Does anyone know how this can be accomplished? I have the original CDs. Your help is greatly appreciated.

You can't install Windows XP Tablet Edition on any HDD/Computer. Recovery CD's require a hidden partition on the HDD that you can't see. This is why when people reformat they find they can't use the recovery CDs, and also why you can't use them on a new HDD.

Hi,
Did you try calling NEC for assistance? They should be able to help you get the VersaPad back working.
