Hey everyone, I'd like to get an external hard drive and put an OS X image on it so I can install my computers from it, so here goes: 1. How do you go about putting the image on a disk, do you just drag and drop it from a CD and then when you want to boot from tht image you hold the option key on starting the mac and select the external and an install process starts? 2. Does the external need to be in any particular format to be used inthe same manner as an installation disk? 3. Can the disk be used for anything other than installing OS X? For example, can I put the image in a folder called install and then another folder called documents or whatever and put stuff in there? 4. Is there anyway I could set the hard drive to be readable by both mac and windows. I know fat32 but it's not great for larger drives and ideally I'd like to be able to take it to Uni with me and save work on their windows systems and move it back and forth? Would my only option be to create a partition that windows can read?
