That would be GUID to boot an Intel Mac.

The other two options are:
Apple Partition Map - to boot PPC Macs
Master Boot Record - for Windows

Nice catch. I was still trying to figure out what was wrong with that statement by the time you posted the answer.

Thanks to each of you for your reply! I was glad to hear specifically that Mike T., chscag, and Rod S. have successfully used My Passport.
Bobtomay, thanks for the clarification that partition should be GUID; and thanks to slydude for confirming!
Much appreciated!
