    I have just installed a new SATA cable and HDD and want to check everything is in order. I don't have my original disks with me, but I do have copies of both disks on an external hard drive. Can I use that to run Apple Hardware Test on my machine?

    You can give it a shot, but I don't know if it will work though. :/

    I doubt it. You need to run the Test's from the original media and with it in the Mac's drive.
