I am a big cloud/minimalist kind of person, so the more things I can get rid of the better.

At the moment, the only reason I have USB/thumb drives still around is because I need them to install Operating Systems onto computers.

So I was wondering if it was possible for me to install an OS to a computer from a tablet or phone(I have the Nexus 10)?

So, kinda treat the tablet like a thumb drive?

I'm pretty sure the Nexus 10 uses MTP for storage, and not a standard USB Mass Storage class, so it won't work that way.

I bet if you had an ultra cheap nasty tablet it would work, as they tend to use less complex systems for storage and transfer. :p

I have an HTC One S, do you know how to do it? Or just saying it might be possible on a normal Mass Storage class?
