How do I load the WINCE7 image onto my tablet?
You can use PlatformBuilder or Manufacture Tool which be shared by Freescale offical website to download Eboot and NK to your tablet. Besides the tools, there has a userguide document to teach you how to do it step by step.
Where did you find the user's guide?

The manufacturing tool can be downloaded from www.freescale.com/imxsabre:
- select link "SABRE platform for Tablets based on i.MX53"
- select tab "Software and Tools"
- select "Programmers (Flash, etc.)"
- download IMX_MFG_TOOL, there is documentation included in the release package.
Thanks Amanda, I used the ethernet tool in the bootloader to program
the SD card. CE7 looks very quick on this platform. Good luck with
Has anybody used the Manufacturing Tool to load WINCE7 to SABRE Tablet?
I've tried but my XP PC is unable to recognise the Tablet. I've tried in bootstrap mode, and mode where I boot from SD card and remove SD card, but get USB device error.
I'm confident the PC is configured correctly as it recognises i/MX53 QSB in similar mode.
I also could not get the Manf tool connected to my PC. It
does not describe what kind of cable (I used an A to A) is needed or which
port to hook it too. My software guru helped me first download
the bootloader and then the image file. This is normally how we did it on our
iMX31 designs. We still have a bug that the tablet needs an ethernet cable
attached to the debug board before you boot. It is looking for the network
and gets stuck if it doen't find one. You can disconnect it once you have booted,
Definitely hook up Teraterm to the debug board serial port to see what's happening.
We haven't got the WAN to work yet either.
