    I've got a blackbook which I've replaced the super drive with an hard drive (giving me two hard drives in total).

    The primary hard drive is blank and I want to install Snow Leopard. My first thought was to use Remote Disc from my Windows 7 machine, but I'm not sure if this will work? I presume I need to connect to my windows 7 via ethernet cable, turn on the blackbook and hold control which gives me access to the remote disc?

    Will this work or am I better copying OS X onto a bootable usb stick?

    Any advice or assistance much appreciated.

    I think Remote Disk will work, but if you can get a bootable image of the installer DVD onto a USB hard drive I imagine the install will be way faster.
