Installing windows 7 on mac air without superdrive

Hey Guys,

Im considering getting the runcore 64gb and I plan to put windows 7 on my rev b air. As I dont have a external dvd drive im planning to try and put windows on by cloning the hdd to the ssd, then booting into that ssd on my mac pro, installing windows, then putting the drive back into the air.

Anyone see any problems with this approach?

I don't see any problems with that.
Make sure you use Carbon Copy Cloner software, and that the drive will be bootable.
