X201 Tablet: how to install Windows 7 from disks; came with XP preinstall

Hi all,

 

I just received a brand new X201 tablet which came with XP preinstalled.  It also came with recovery disks which include a full licensed version of windows 7.

 

I would like to install Windows 7 on the machine, but seeing as how there is no DVD drive, I am perplexed as to how they expect anyone to make the upgrade (though i imagine people purchase this particular model because they WANT XP preinstalled).

 

Anyway, I tried to make a bootbale USB using the primary recovery disk to no avail.  Any ideas?  It seems odd there is little documentation provided to assist in this issue.

 

Thanks.
