My wife has an LE1600 Tablet by Motion Computing. It will boot to USB FLOPPY/CD/DVD...if I had one, but I don't. It will not boot to USB stick. Can I boot over network and install the new OS over the network? I am not just curious for this one instance, but would like to know so I can do it in the future as well.

This is one of the documentation provided for the Motion Tablet. It seems its only applicable for an upgrade over the internet in which you would need a USB optical drive as a requirement.

Your tablet is capable of booting from a usb drive. The drive needs to be formatted to be bootable You can use a free utility http://wintoflash.com/overview/en/'>Wintoflash you can down load it here use the links pointing to FTP or use a torrent client.if you have one. The utility will format the usb bootable and copy the windows installer to the usb. When the tablet boots use the stylus to tap the gray logo, you can the choose your boot device. Or use an external keyboard and change the bios .
