Run full OS X installer for another drive without rebooting
Authored by: V.K. on Jan 27, '10 02:38:19PM

You can certainly use a dmg instead of making a separate partition but I would not install on one mac while booted from another.
This can lead to problems if you are using computer specific install disks and even with a retail disk the resulting install will misidentify the hardware.

But for installing on a different drive on the same computer a dmg will work just fine.
