It is SIMPLE to boot of the SD card with a nook tablet. From the information I obtained it is best to use a class 4 micro SD card (which is what I am using). Here is a 10 step process that I was able to complete in 10 minutes time:
1) Format a good SD [google.com] card of at least 4GB in size (A good SD card should have a formatted Crystal disk [cnet.com]4k QD32 write of 1 or greater.) I found the 16gb G.Skill Cl10 cards from newegg were great - QD32 1.4....
So higher than class 4 is OK?
If you appreciate a post be sure to rep, and I'll do the same
Yeah same here, using a Class 10 GSkill 32GB for 19.99 from newegg. As long as the random writes (QD32) are good ( > 1.2MB ) it's all well. The internal eMMC for the nook itself is at ~1.3MB/sec. The GSkill i got is at 1.45MB/sec and runs noticeably faster than my Class 4 Sandisk 8GB ( Random writes around 1MB/sec )

In case someone want to known. I got in last time and it looks brand new accept a sticker saying rf.
I got in on the 89.99 deal too. My USB Cable/Charging cable looked used though, the tablet on the other hand looked brand new. The cable works fine but my nook tablet refuses to boot from SD card without the power cable connected. So later, i just flashed the eMMC with CM10.
