I don't know for windows if the styck mode will work, but im sure it can be done. so if only the updates thing stop users from running the win and mac os totally from ram maybe the stick mode or when you see updates coming, move the os to another hard drive apply the updates there, reboot, than move the os back to ram, I think you understand what I try to say, so wouldn't this work?
From what I've read and heard i believe you can. Personally I would just get a second SSD. A Mac OS is much smaller so you don't need a large SSD for it. You can have an operating system on each one and just hit the right "F" key on boot and choose which drive to boot from. It a much less volatile solution. Rather than using your ram use a SSD and then utilize the ram in each program to try to maximize the program out to use the ram you have. USB3 is dependent on software to work at the right speeds. It is not yet native in the chipset. I can see why you want to put it on a stick but your stick will only run at USB2 speeds during boot. Only after boot will you get USB3 speeds. I have found that when I want to flash a bios if I put my usb device in a usb3 port the bios will not recognize it. It's supposed to be backwards compatible but if the bios won't recognize it I doubt you will be able to boot from a USB3 drive. I guess it also depends on the board but so far that has been true for every board I've used up till now.

Thank you again for your time, well I can live with the idea at boot to run usb2.0 so I think ill give it a try also I was thinking when I see I have new updates make a image of the os and move it to another hard drive and there apply update than move image back smile.gif for the moment I don't have all ssds and hdds raid, so I will buy now the ram, and in windows I make ram disk and install than windows in ram disk, backup on hdd of the windows just in case, ill do myself periodic backups ill not rely only on the ramdisk softwares in case some power downs and loose ram data wink.gif so il do this from time to time is ok, than move again windows to ramdisk. As for Mac Os ill do the same, and when ill have 2 ssds in raid0 like 1200mb/s on an os of more or less of 30gb, backing up all before reboot and at boot will take max 30s-60s so its ok and worth this waiting for a totally os run from ram smile.gif

And also I think this efforts are in a way equal, to the trouble moving all things to ram disk not the os, I mean for my documents temps web cache etc, in a way seems like the same for me, but I have the best performance smile.gif

I'm glad I could help and If you want you can Rep+ me which will give me a little extra credibility around here. I just joined a few months back so I'm looking to gain a little notoriety. Good luck with your system. I would not bother to Raid0 your SSD's when you get them. You will actually slow them down in capability. They already run @ 500MB/s and you could have two of them using that speed whereas if you raid them you can only achieve 768MB/s because that is as fast as a Sata3 6Gb/s can handle. Put your different OS's one on each. It will be just as fast but be 2 separate drives. I don't think the rest of the hardware can realistically handle anything faster so you won't see very much gain in Raid0. If you are using HDD's in the loop they will be your bottleneck when you transfer files from drive to drive. That is why you cache them. If you transfer files from SSD to SSD with no cache then you will notice a much greater gain being able to read from one and write to the other @ 500MB/s. It will greatly improve your drive to drive speeds.
