    Has anyone tried this:
    In your Apple Thunderbolt Disply, connect a bootable Firewire drive
    Connect your thunderbolt capable Mac to the display
    Restart your Mac after setting the FireWire drive as the startup disk or selecting the FireWire drive as the startup as you press the Option key while the Mac boots up

    Does it work?
    If it does, how's the performance?
