OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro mini 2.5" HD enclosure

Tried this new quad interface bus-powered HD enclosure recently with 320 GB Seagate Momentus installed. I wanted to boot from FW800, leaving my faster internal SATA drives for data and scratch files.

The rig worked as advertised with one exception. It will not boot a G5 over Firewire as listed in Other World Computing specs. MacDoc tried everything, but eventually replaced it with their older FW800 model and cash-back.
PowerMac G5 dual 2.3GHz (PCIe), OS X 10.5.8, LaCie 2port eSATA, FW800 boot.
iPod Touch 1G.
