Q. Is it supported to run some of my Windows Server 2008 or Server 2008 R2 cluster nodes booting from local storage and others from a SAN?

A. The easy answer here is to run the validation wizard. If the cluster passes validation, it will be supported. I've seen several failover clusters with this configuration that pass validation with no problems.
