DeployStudio ThinImage version?

Hi,

I suggest that DeployStudio Assistant could build a "ThinImage" DS Runtime version that could be used for setting up a brand new Mac without booting to DS Runtime environment.

This "DSR ThinImage" version should include all the scripts; resources and command line tools needed for full functionality.
And it should use it's own resources and tools as Apple's Restore Boot is missing quite a lot of command line tools.

New Mac is booted from the Restore partition, Terminal is launched and by launching a script from that "DSR ThinImage" USB disk you could connect your DS server and select workflows.
Or it could be a self-contained full DS Server maybe, if needed?

This would be useful when you have a new Mac that cannot yet be booted from DS NetBoot or DS USB.

What do you think of this?
