    Its for an Open-E san. I don't trust USB devices for the boot partition anymore.

    It isn't possible to use Sata one due to the chassis.

    Could you not add an internal sata card and then use a sata to sd converter?

    Not unless it's a laptop he's building or the chassis has a mini pci-e slot or can adapt that to a full size pci-e slot.

    Thats the kind of thing. That will fit in a normal PCI slot won't it? I wonder if I can screw it into a full high plate.

    You will kill the SD card i think - too many writes.
