Note: ASD is tested with a custom Mac OS that is supplied in the image. As a test requirement the OS is set up as a root user. 
DO NOT copy ASD to another OS or some tests will fail. Also running ASD on another OS removes some of the Finder menu items and is NOT recommended
Important: Unlike versions of ASD previously available for the MacBook Pro, 
ASD version 3S162 requires installation onto an external USB hard drive.
Apple Service Diagnostics (ASD) is distributed to Apple Service Providers. The Apple Service Diagnostics application is designed to run both EFI and Mac OS X tests from an external USB hard drive. Apple Service Diagnostics (EFI) runs low-level tests of the hardware directly and does not require Mac OS X, while Apple Service Diagnostics (OS) uses Mac OS X to run tests.
