How to boot Toshiba Portege M200 from image with no CD drive

My Toshiba Portege M200 has no CD drive, and I would like to boot to Acronis to reload from an image that I created. I don't know how else to get the OS and all the drivers loaded. It doesn't seem to have the Toshiba hidden boot partition on the HD.

"You can partition your hard drive and put Acronis on the new partition. Just do follow these instruction but on your partition instead of a thumb drive.

Have you tried UNetbootin?

""UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a ""frugal install"" on your local hard disk if you don't have a USB drive""

This is assuming that you have a working O/S currenty.

Put the hard drive in a computer with a working optical drive. Install with that computer, then put the hard drive back."
