I'm trying to boot my system from my eSata 1 TB. I created an independent partition on the drive to accommodate this new build. I can boot up fine on my old system, I am using an esata to sata cable to do this. Plugging my esata drive directly into the mobos internal sata.
in the specs of my old mobo it says it has 4 internal sata I/II 3.0 gbs, I've been booting perfectly using my esata on this system for a few days. But now that I've got my new mobo and CPU I am having no luck at all booting from esata.
Above is the link to an older thread before I did research... or Am I still grasping at straws? Shouldn't I be able to boot up on my new system? If the esata was working with the older mobo's Sata I/II ports should it not work with my new mobo's sataII port? thanks
