That thread got it wrong. It is possible to boot off of USB (1, 1.1, or 2.... Ok... 1 would take forever, and 1.1 would be slow). The big thing is that the bridge chipset has to support booting, and since Windows does not really provide support for booting off external volumes (think activation), some of the manufacturers have been skipping this feature.
Ok, so what you're saying is that while it's technically feasible, most (almost all?) devices do not support it. Not one person participating in that thread was able to boot from a USB device (myself included).
That's pretty much the same as saying it's not possible, is it not?
