hello,  

 

if i format a usb drive, to say hfs+ , is 1 partition already made on it?  Trying to figure this out is confusing as there does not appear to be a 'partition map scheme (guid or master boot record) if i do it this way.

 

However, if i specifically select "1 partition" on the usb drive, i get the choice to choose between guid and mbr

 

in a plain format, like in the first way i described, is a partition made on the usb, or is it all just emptyless and partitionless space for storage (and would this also mean that nothing can boot off of it)

 

many thanks
