    -None of the DSS versions allow you to use the boot media in the storage array.
    -should the boot media fail, it is far faster and easier to use a boot cd, or bootable USB thumb drive to get you back up and running, while you figure out your problems.
    -Yes, older configs can be restored to newer versions of DSS, in the same box. This is normal, and is done for example, when users upgrade from version5 to version6.

    You can use the Backup function to a Dynamic unit from a USB drive.
    All the best,
