Did you try booting while holding down the Option key all the way through? From the resulting screen you can then choose the Lion drive to boot.

You should probably look for a google drive support forum and post your problem there. It's much more likely to get a quick response there than here.

2GB will most likely NOT work well with Yosemite, if at all. It's not good for Mavericks, so I cannot believe it will be good for Yosemite.

If you have to choose between One-on-one and the 16GB, I'd say the 16GB will be the better investment. The learning curve is not THAT steep, and the memory is not user (if at all) upgradable in that...

There will ALWAYS be the poster who says, "I tried doing something and it didn't work. Help!"

We can spend days and days asking questions and getting one fact at a time!

You don't, I think, have to format it if all you want to do is reformat it. Just connect it, open DU, select and partition the drive, formatting it for Mac OSX Extended (journaled), which is HFS+.
