so I am preparing my boot setup and have a question with booting several OS on separate drives. I will be using either the R4E or one of the WS boards from Asus.
So, especially when I want to have an emergeny partition I am under the impression that it would be better to install OS X and windows 7 on two separate drives. Now, with doing this I would need three SATA III ports (additional data SSD, but no RAID). But of course with the X79 chipset I only have two "native" Intel SATA III ports. Since the windows installation is not that important for me, the plan is to attach both OS X and Data SSDs to the (more performant and reliable?) intel port, and boot Windows from a "non native" SATA III port. (ASMedia or Marvel Controller, depending on the selected board)
Now the question: would this setup cause any problems, with one bootable SSD hooked to the secondary controller?
