Re: Make to boot from SD? - 04-18-2009, 06:53 PM
Although it is not simple there is a way to actually boot from an SD card. You can either
1) Use a USB card reader... (USB devices are seen by the bios as bootable devices...)
2) Or add additional modules to the kernel of your OS (with linux it would be easier I guess) and use grub to boot.
If you are still interested and know how to mess around with your OS here is a post where I discuss the details for two linux distros... and soon I hope to be able to dual boot windows and ubuntu (windows installed in the internal SSD drive an ubuntu from the slot reader)
p.s. And yeah.... stop crossposting
