Booting a Macintosh from a USB Thumbdrive

Elements tested:
– 2.4GHz mid 2007 Macbook Pro 15″ (model #1226) running OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3
– 32GB Corsair Survivor GTR USB Thumbdrive running “The Ultimate Bootable Flashdrive Tool.”
rEFIt boot manager installed from a mac disk image.

Goal: To boot from the Corsair thumbdrive.

Results: Unable to boot from Corsair thumbdrive.

Reason for Result: The rEFIt website clearly states that the Apple firmware has poor support for booting from external devices under their troubleshooting section.
