Running an ODD off the internal USB


Recommended Posts

I was considering using my internal USB port to power and run a ODD in the bay. By using a USB 2.0 - SATA adaptor. I don't need speed I just want to be able to use it to boot.


- Will I be able to boot from it?
- Any perceived problems?

I was contemplating cabling the sata & power away from the drive then to an adaptor but that one looks nice... Seems best approach to save wasting an all to valuable sata port!
