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. 

Note to self:

Beware of bringing up in discussions one's personal feelings on hardware
brands. Discussion will detour from original topic quickly.
