    Default GA-Z77-DS3H (rev. 1.1) MB with 120GB mSATA - Can it be boot drive? Win7-Ultimate

    I have a GA-Z77-DS3H (rev. 1.1) mb in my workstation and was given an OCZ 120GB mSATA drive. Can I use the drive in the MB mSATA slot to function as a boot-drive in Windows7 Ultimate system?

    If so, than the obvious next question is, where do I begin in order to make it happen? I've never used one of these before. Clone boot maybe?

    Any info or reference appreciated.

    Thanx

    from my understanding all you can do with that port is use it as a cache drive for when running standard HD's to speed up performance. High frequency files are cached on that mSata drive.

    I don't believe you can use it as a boot drive. but I may be wrong.
