Default Install OS X on my 10v without USB dvd drive? - 06-23-2009, 05:14 PM

I've been seeing a lot of guides on the forum but they all require either having a mac or having a USB dvd drive. Is there a guide that only requires to have usb flash drives? I just bought my OS X disc and I'm eager to get started!

If you follow the video guide I did, I did it using a 128 MB flash drive and 16 GB flash drive (you could probably get away with 8 GB, but all I had was the 16 GB).

Alienware M11xR2 - Core i5 1.06 - 4 GB - 250 GB HD

The USB method is definitely the cheapest route. I grabbed a really nice OCZ Diesel 8 GB from NewEgg for around $15 and almost everyone has a small flash drive lying around. Even if you buy two 8 GB flash drives that is way cheaper than any external DVD drives. I'm also assuming it is an easier route, but I'm awaiting my Mini.
