Hey all, G'daaaaamn this laptop is amazing! Was a much needed upgrade from my early-2006 MacMini though, haven't ever experienced anything as fast as this! Anyway, something's got me a bit troubled. I have an external firewire-800 HDD. On my MacMini I could just go HDD->800->400->MacMini, without having to use the power supply for the drive (which, somewhat oddly, goes into a usb-port). I bought the Thunderbolt-Firewire800 dongle with the rMBP, so I thought I'd hook my drive up. Sadly though, it won't boot itself when it's just plugged into the Thunderbolt port (drive->800->TB->rMBP). I solved this by plugging in the power supply (usb cable) into the laptop as well, and bam, there it goes! I find it odd though, that Thunderbolt isn't capable of providing sufficient power for my external drive, where the Firewire-800 port on my old Macmini could. Is this normal? Is there a workaround? I've already got a ton of cables going into this thing as is (MagSafe, TB-ethernet, TB-firewire, audio, HMDI), so it'd be nice if I could keep that there usb-slot free. Thanks!
