    Thanks anyways... What was the problem you had with it?
    dead screen...

    I'm on the latest BIOS provided by Dell Update. I just checked around the Advanced Startup section in W8 and it seems you can boot from removable media, so hopefully that includes SD cards?
    no mate, I tried it..

    Test booting from an SD card, before you actually get yourself in a position where you need to. My laptop has a built in SD card reader but will not boot from it. If I put that same SD Card in an SD to USB adapter I can boot from it. The built in SD Card reader does not show up as a boot option in the BIOS.
    Sadly, the microSD slot for Venue is just for storage, doesn't allow boot from there...

    They boot if the system has support for this option eg. single board systems like raspberry pi and PandaBoard can boot from uSD/SD cards

    Would an SD card work if the tablet has an SD Card reader? I don't have a lot of experience with imaging so I'm not entirely sure. Technically, the SD card is an external drive and if it is big enough, you should be able to back up the tablet on it.
    It possible. But one way to find out is to do a trial run with backup and restore and see if it sees the SD card as a choice. If and when this is run, boot to your Windows Recovery menu to pretend to restore from an image and see if it sees the card.

    Might be better to say, that device won't boot from an SD card, than saying, SD Cards are not bootable. An SD card can be made bootable. I have one that my laptop will boot from if its in a USB adapter. It won't boot from it in the built in card reader though because my BIOS does not support that option.
