Default Possible to install on SD Card? - 05-14-2009, 02:46 AM

16GB SDHC cards are pretty cheap now, is it possible to install and run OSX from one? I only have an 8gb SSD and am running OSX now from it but if I can gain more space using an SD card as the boot drive i'd dig it

The SDHC reader on the side can't be booted from.

You may, however, find luck with a internal mini-pcie SDHC reader, if you're willing to solder in a mini-pcie socket.
