So I'm supposed to help a friend upgrade her computer later today so she can run Lion. Her upgrade includes a new hard drive. She has a C2D MacBook and I have a CD MacBook. Her Superdrive doesn't work. I was going to Remote Install Snow Leopard using my Superdrive but she's having problems finding her disc and we are too far from anywhere to buy a retail copy. Would there be a way for me to remote install Lion from my CD? When I open Remote Install it asks for a disc. We also have some external hard drives. Could we maybe install it on one of those and use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone it to her new hard drive? Today would be the only day I can do this as I have to go back home tomorrow. ---------- When you install Lion, do you have the option of doing a clean install? We could maybe do that on her current hard drive then clone it to the new one. I really want to do a clean install. Her Mac never seemed to run as smooth as mine, although I think she only has 512mb of RAM (it'll be maxed out after today).
