I can't really find a category for this, as it involves both Mac OS X and Windows. so I've just put it in storage.
Basically I've lost my one and only pen drive and I need it to install Mac OS X on a new hard drive. Now I have two hard drives, a 500 GB one and a 250 GB one. The 250 is currently in my Mac which I wish to transfer all my data from in when I install the new OS, so everything will be going from the 250 to the 500. So my question is, can you make a bootable installation partition from a hard drive? So its almost like a pen drive? The partition will then be wiped as the 250 is going in a different computer. I have access to both Mac and Windows machines to do so.
