iMac 2008 fails to boot from FW drive


Just completed a Full Backup of my iMac 2008 on a FW drive (IOmega Ultramax).
At boot i press the option key as usual and I'm prompted with the choice to boot from Macintosh HD or my external FW (GUID Partition)
Suddenly after I select my external drive the grey Apple turns to a forbidden sign

and boot continues on Macintosh HD.
This Apple article explains that the problem can be related to a renamed system folder or kernel panic but I do not think is the problem, here, especially when Mac OS X - 10.5.3 Leopard boots normally from my internal drive.

Any clue?
I'm using a registered version of SD 2.5.

- Kind Regards
