Aha. I only have DVDs up to 4 GB so I will pop out later and pick up a larger one so I can use liondiskmaker to make an installation disk, then I will insert it into the MBP's DVD drive, plug in the external hard drive, and see if I can use the MBP to install ML to the external hard drive from the DVD. Hope I got it right this time.

Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone, rejuvenated a discarded MacBook and, finally, Apple Watch. Happy camper.
