Okay? Let's go... PREAMBLE: In essence, this machine comes shipped without an Optical Disk Drive (ODD), so this guide is going to initially assume that everyone is using the same setup without an Optical Disk Drive. This generally means you're going to have to use a fully operational & working Mac OS X to create your Mac OS X Installer Disk. NOTE: For those of you without a working install of Mac OS X. Fear not! It IS possible t...
