I have a wierd problem if you try to boot from a seagate expansion 1tb drive that I have to work around. If you try and boot and the computer is shutdown my bios on several computers will not detect the drive but if you had the computer powered on before and then select reboot you can boot from it. Note I am booting from it because I don't really want to partition shrink on my internal drives. My western digital elements however seems to run perfectly well when you try to boot from it.
