Hey Dave,

So... I'm excited about the new thunderbolt interface on the new Macs. Will they be bootable? Can't wait to get a new Mac and an external drive from OWC that boots off of thunderbolt...

Apple has said that, right now, Thunderbolt is not bootable.

Bummer. Yeah, this post has some further detail: Hopefully, eventually, we will be able to.

Thanks for posting that link, Brad.

I just spoke with Apple sales. The rep I spoke with assured me that Thunderbolt supports bootable drives.

The sales rep is being a bit misleading. While Thunderbolt may "support" bootable drives, you cannot boot from drives on Thunderbolt as of right now.
