If you’ve ever wanted to use a flash memory card to run your PC’s operating system, you’re not alone. Flash memory has proven itself to be fast, quiet and less susceptible to damage due to shock and vibration. The easiest way I have found to do this with an SD/MMC card would be to use this IDE to SD/MMC adapter.
This adapter is awesome because the BIOS actually detects your card as a regular IDE drive. Just hook it up and you’re ready to install your favorite OS. The adapter is cheap, as you’ll only pay around $25.
