Boot some MacBook Pros via an ExpressCard solid state drive
Authored by: petersconsult on Apr 27, '10 03:50:40PM

I doubt you'll see this, but i figured i'd try...

How did you make a SymbolicLink to the /Users folder on the HD?
Does this work without MacOS X seeing any difference?

i would need to do that with both the /Users and the /Applications folders, but there's no reason it wouldn't work if it works with the /Users folder, right?

About the heat issues:
If you don't mind a slightly higher fan noise, i urge you to use smcFanControl --find it here:

I have it set to 3000RPM as my default, it hardly makes any more noise than the Apple default, which is 2000RPM.

When i play a graphics-intensive game like X-Plane, i bump it to 5500RPM (almost max); that way it never gets hotter than 90C, and the cpu and video card have no reason to slow down out of heat concerns!

You have to choose: performance + a little noise *or* less noise=less performance...


Cheers
