    this....


    I have done this a few times and it works nice. It has recovery stuff burned into firmware.


    I would make the recommendation that when/if you do this use a wired connection. Wired is faster and you will be pulling down a whole OS doing this. Over trying out a few drives in a short time span I found this process goes much faster with a wired connection.
