What do you mean booting from SAN? Do you mean Exchange Binaries or installation path located on SAN drive. If yes, it can be done. DAG is a feature in Exchange 2013, It seems you are asking Database on SAN which are in DAG, So yes that can be also done and supported.

And if your question is around OS booting on SAN drive, then read below MS KB.

Hope this helps.
