I have been looking at harddisk encryption and the question I have is:
How does one enter the password on a Tablet without a keyboard, on hard
disk encryption software that has Pre-Boot Authentication.

That's easy, you take the stylus and write the password on the tablet.  :)

But seriously - this is basically the same problem as the infamous DOS message:

Keyboard not found - hit any key to continue...

Either you provide a keyboard, or the software vendor provides an alternate
method of entering the password.  Contact the vendor and ask *them*...
