The link clearly states they were not successful which is true. You can not boot from a storage space. That is a software level disk abstraction layer only available from within Windows. The computer firmware would not understand SS nor how to boot from it. It would simply see X number of disks

It is conceivable that since the Surface line is build by Microsoft that they have firmware code that can boot to a storage space. Any other system likely does not.

true ,
So as you said boot would be unable to recognise my storage space, ok we can't keep the entire C drive in storage space but i can keep parts of it like Users,Packages,program files and once loaded it would be able to recognise the storage pool i am thinking somewhere around these lines would this help out or am I going in a wrong direction
