  1. I had someone ask me recently about this and I was wondering if anyone here had any experience doing this. Basically they want to install OS X Lion on an external volume and use it as the boot OS drive for two different Macs (one at home and one at work). In theory I would think this would work just fine, but the question is are there any unforeseen issues in doing this? The two I can think of are: Differences in hardware, specifically OS X firmware that might be specific to one model vs. the other Hardware drivers. Similar to item #1. If there are default drives needed for one Mac that were;t installed because the OS was tailored for the other Mac. Hope this makes sense.
