More on Booting from OS X USB3 drives connected to Thunderbolt Docks
Added two more replies to a separate page on the question about booting from Thunderbolt dock connected USB3 drives.

Also had a request to post a reminder on OS X 10.10.2 Thunderbolt problems (kernel panics if ejected TB drives powered off, etc - not TB drive brand specific it seems.) Apple forum threads on problems here, here, here and here. (Most from late 2013 mac pro owners but also some from other TB port equipped macs including iMacs.)
