With my current setup, I have lightning installed on OS X 10.8 installed on an external thunderbolt drive. When Im ready to image, I connect the drive to a machine and boot from the external drive. After launching lightning, choosing an image, and selecting deploy I run into a slight problem/inconvenience. By default lightning has "continuously detect" and "exclude internal drives" checked. In the setup I've described, unchecking "exclude internal drives" results in the deploy menu continuously attempting to detect. but, it does not find the internal drive. If I uncheck "continuously detect" as well, I get a list of available drives. But, the internal drive is still missing from the list. If I them close lightning, reopen it, choose the image and deploy, and then uncheck both boxes again, I finally get the option to deploy to the internal drive. I love lightning's creation simplicity and deploy speeds. But, any chance you could simplify the process of deploying from an external environment to an internal drive. This seems like the fastest and most mobile/versatile setup.
