Boot some MacBook Pros via an ExpressCard solid state drive
Authored by: yangzone on Aug 19, '10 08:05:03AM

The 48GB Wintec works nicely on my Late '08 MBP. My main apps are installed on the card (along with the system which points to a user file on the internal 1TB WD drive.) Very snappy. I have a clone of the expresscard system on the internal drive and one backed up externally (daily.)

Problem is I have not figured out how to start up in single user or verbose mode yet. No response to the usual key combos at the chime.

Remember the expresscard has to have fast read/write speeds (like the Wintec 48GB card) to qualify for this upgrade. A lot of them only carry USB speeds so would be dog slow.
