I think I am beginning to see that when he says Touchpad he really means
IBM or Lenovo Thinkpad.

I have no idea what he's talking about when he says diskless format, usb
thumb drive perhaps.

Then he talks about low level formatting his disk from the bios.  That I
am aware of and he should NEVER do that!

Apparently, the guy cannot search google, hardly read and write english,
or install Linux on this touchpad!!!

I would throw him a bone if that would help, but he would probably stand
on the curb waiting for a car to come by and step out in front of it.  I
know I would...
