In Topic: Boot OS X from eSATA (ExpressCard)?

11 September 2009 - 08:06 AM

Hi,

if anyone's interested: I have a MBP and added an eSATA card to it, and I wanted to boot Snow Leopard from it. When trying to install directly to the drive when connected to the eSATA port, the installation fails. But having it connected with a USB cable works fine. After the installation and the first reboot, I replugged it via eSATA and it now works perfectly! I now have a perfect Snow Leopard install on an external RAID0.

What I'm now going to do is to try to set my user account up that it actually accesses the user folder on the internal drive. I'll see if that works.
