You're not really booting off the SATA drive.  You're booting off the SATA 
card, which is connected to the drive.

In theory, the Mac should be able to boot off compatible SATA cards, because 
the newer Mac Pros do that already.  Whether or not this particular card is 
compatible with your particular Mac is a different issue.
