I just got my new 320 gig HD from newegg set up today. Yay! However, I was planning on booting from it via firewire. (I was told that my intel mac could boot off of usb 2.0 also). Well, the cords in the box are iffy. The USB one is working right now but I don't seem to be able to use the firewire. Look at the pics below. WTF? Why is one end so little. I have to plug the regular looking firewire port into the back of the machine. It doesn't one for the "little" one and neither, obviously, does my macbook. Should I just tough it out with USB? Will it be suffiecient for storage/booting? One more question. I want to give 80 gigs to Windows Vista and the rest as storage that preferably a windows computer could access on the network. How should I format my drive to be able to do that? Sorry for the pics not being too awful clear.
