    Hey everyone, I couldn't find an answer to this so I'm gonna just ask it here. I have an eSATA drive and I have created two partitions. One contains a carbon clone of my Mac hard drive and the other contains Vista. I was wondering how to make the eSATA drive bootable through an eSATA connection. I haven't tried any other connection. Anybody out there know an answer to this? Thanks in advance.

    I haven't had great success with CCC and bootable backups, but if you don't need the automation it can provide, I use Disk Utility and the "Restore" function to create bootable copies of drives all the time. I haven't ever tried an eSATA bootable disk though, so I'm not sure on that count.
