I have a HP TC1100 tablet PC, awesome little device for reading and browsing on – much more functional than the disappointing iPad. Anyway, I recently replaced the hard disk with a CF card + IDE to CF adapter – increasing the battery life, reducing boot time, making the unit quieter, and generally faster.
I had to reinstall XP tablet edition on it – after searching around for ages and ages to find restore CDs for it online (bought mine second hand, no restore cds), I opted to just buy some from HP technical support. Annoyingly they don’t make them available for download, and I therefore had to wait near on 2 weeks for delivery.
Download HP TC1100 tablet restore CDs
You can download the ISOs from me for the small fee of £5.00. Simply make payment using the PayPal button below and I will email you a link to the files within a few hours. These CDs do not require an activation key as it is supplied with your tablet, under your battery. You won’t be prompted for one when running through the install – but the restore image will only work on the TC1100 (checks bios). They are therefore fully licensed and will accept all current and future Microsoft Updates.
Once your payment is received I manually create your download account – usually within about 2-4 hours, depending on the time in the UK.
You will receive an email with links to two ISO images. The first is the system restore CD, the second is the drivers CD that would have come with the tablet originally. Both of the images work, and were created from the physical restore media I purchased from HP.
There are no licensing issues with distribution this way. I am doing this merely for convenience, you can of course purchase the physical media from HP directly, be ready to pay a lot more than £5.00 for delivery! If you own the HP TC1100, you are licensed/permitted to run XP Tablet.
Update: 8th Sept 2012 – all of my restore downloads are still available. Simply make a purchase using the “Buy Now” button in the article. Remember that its a manual process for me to create your account and send you an email, so it can take up to a day to hear from me.
