I want to install SL from a retail disk. The PC I want to use has a spare internal HD, so I can use that to build the custom install. However, I also don't have OS X on the PC, only Windows. Is there a way I can restore the HD to the SL DVD with a Windows program?

 

Thanks in advance!

Anyone? If there's a Linux equivalent of Disk Utility that could do it, that'd also be very helpful.

 

You can use the dd command in Linux......see here.....

Thanks, will certainly look into that ;)

 

EDIT: I can't believe I didn't think of this before! Can I just partition my Time Machine drive, and do it on say a 10GB partition without ruining the backups or readability from TM?
