Hello bobfromnm,


Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.


Yes, you may use an SD or SDXC card as a startup disk as long as you have formatted it at Mac OS Extended and changed the default partition table to GUID.


About the SD and SDXC card slot



Take care,

NOTE:  The SD card slot is not fast, but it does may a good emergency boot/recovery device.
