What alternatives to install OS in MBA without superdrive?
Hello everyone I have a problem with the MBA(First generation), yesterday afternoon delete all information of the MBA this to have clean system since the person that I it sold had too much information that I do not interested me so I provided a dvd of OS X 10.5 to do so, the surprise was when discovery that I can install it again, this operation achieved with a usb external recorder.
now I just need to know that another way I can do that because I know that the MBA needs a special operating system for the.
What other operating system may in this MBA?
Perhaps snow leopard can in this laptop?
any way to do this with any usb memory?
from already thank?

Thank you and another question
This software cannot be installed on this mac
one of my questions was whether snow leopard has this utility to load the OS network and works in this macbook air (first generation)
it if this is possible will have to buy the DVDs of snow leopard and make it work!
But I do not wish to make an unnecessary if the OS fails in this MBA expense!
Miss add that I do not have the DVD that comes with the MBA because the person that I the sold not gave me the DVD because it had lost

Instead of me having to write out the instructions, just follow these:
Basically this should be done on another computer with OS X.
If that option is not possible, do you have an Apple store nearby? They will lend you an optical drive for this operation. Finally even if they can't lend you anything, just buy a new drive and return it after you are done with it.
Now if there is no Apple store nearby and you have no access to another Mac with an optical drive, then you will need to buy an external USB optical drive (doesn't have to be Apple brandedů)
