    Hi folks,

    I've set up a 3-SSD 2011 iMac 27" (2 SATA3 SSDs in RAID0, 1 SATA2 SSD in DVD bay).

    I'm wondering if anyone has tried to boot an external drive (like a Windows Boot Camp drive) attached to a Thunderbolt Dock:

    1. Would it be recognized as a bootable drive in Boot Camp / holding Option at startup?

    2. How's the performance for either an HD or SSD connected to Thunderbolt?
    Thanks!
