Great, bricked my LE1700... the BIOS updater borked out with an error, then rebooted (win7 update required it), and now it won't switch on. Tried the USB method with multiple pendrives (from 128MB to 8GB), so far none worked. A 2GB one achieved that the tablet switched on a bit (I could hear its buzz, and the HDD was spinning), but even after 20 minutes, nothing.
Could anyone post a DD'd working restore disk? Size does not matter!
