Do you need a legit Apple ROM/firmware to do internet recovery, just like you need legit Apple hardware to use Target Disk Mode?

(trying to recover corrupted OS X ssd that was in my hackintosh, i thought maybe if i stuck it in a real mac, it might be able to use internet recovery, since i've been unable to do so while the drive is in the hackintosh.)

The Unibeast USB provides all the recovery tools you need to recover your system. Boot into that and select "Mac OS X Recovery" and the process will start...
