How to install vista on my thinkpad tablet x200 without dvdplayer

For the past 3 weeks my thinkpad table x200 has not been working. Thanks to the great lenovo/ibm support. I am looking for help. I called the support and explained the problem, I was encountering with my thinkpad tablet. They told me, I have to reinstall vista. So they sent me the vista/lenovo install disk.

 

Very fast (3 weeks later, so yesterday) I finally get the dvds (3 in total). But how do I install vista without a dvdplayer.

 

Unfortunately,I don't have one with my machine. I supposed, they knew what they were doing at Lenovo.

 

 Does anyone has a way to do it? Should I place it on an external hardrive, an usb key?

 

Thank you for any help you can give me!

 

If I cann't find a way to do it, I will call back the lenovo/support... gosh at the end of the week, it will be 4 weeks.. 

 

Bye Hernan

Do a search online for installing vista through a USB drive. Requires one 4+ GB in size. Isn't a terribly hard thing to do.

I've had mixed results with loading OS from USB or SD. Anyone else had problems?
