FileWave’s Lightning is a new, free imaging tool designed to work with Apple’s new Thunderbolt technology. It purportedly allows for the creation and deployment of never-booted ASR images, based on 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion installers.

Once the base image is created, any PKG or self-contained OS X App can be added and sorted in a e drag and drop interface. Lightning also fully utilizes the new Mountain Lion Notification Center.

Lightning allows users to drag larger images that have been prepared by other tools into the imaging library, where they will be deployed using either a Thunderbolt, USB or FireWire port. You can download it at .
