Title:

Can I boot a MacBook Pro logic board w/o case?

Text:

I would like to test a Macbook pro logic board before I buy it.

Is it possible to run it with a USB volume, external display & keyboard and power cable connected?

As far as I know the logic board would start as soon as the power cable is connected if there is no battery installed. But will it also boot from the USB volume? Or could I even try the ā€œDā€ key Apple hardware test option?

Device:

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Early 2011
