Windows 7: Boot from eSATA dock

29 Jul 2012   #1

Boot from eSATA dock

Have a Dell Zino that has been overheating. Plan on cleaning the heatsinks, new thermal grease. Would like to remove the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue ! important]hard [COLOR=blue ! important]drive[/COLOR][/COLOR] [/COLOR]and install it in an external eSATA dock. Will I be able to boot with this setup?

Booting from eSata is no problem. Just set the boot priority for the dock to be first.
