Question: How to install OS onto laptop with GPU/no screen using TDM.

I have a late 2011 17" MacBookPro8,3. My GPU busted and I get the infamous vertical stripes. Since then I've purchased a new MBP. I have mounted the 2011 MPB using Target Disk Mode, backed up my files, and erased the hard drive to prep for sale. I would like to do a clean install of High Sierra, which it had prior to the issue.


Can I simply download the "Install macOS High Sierra" from Apple on my new laptop, mount the 2011 using TDM, and install OS onto the old machine?


I've not found proper instructions on Apple's site to do this for this situation.


Thank you.

MacBook Pro
