Default install OS (OSX or XP) on SD card? - 07-26-2009, 01:43 PM

did the customary search but cant find it.

* can you install OS X on an SD card and boot from it (using the built-in card reader)?
* can you install XP on an SD card and boot from it (using the built-in card reader)?
* how's the speed/performance?

can you guys point me to a thread were this topic is discussed?

You can on a 10v, but you can't boot from the SD slot on a mini 9 or Vostro A90.
