Okay: They don't utilize USB 3.0 since its name, "SuperSpeed," makes it too obvious which USB is which. The version 3.0 is dead and gone, despite its designation. When comparing versions 3.0 and 3.1 gen 1, there is no difference in performance or other characteristics (5gbps). USB 3.1 Gen 2 is another option (sometimes known as USB 3.0). Definitely faster than the original, but PSYCH! Another rebranding is in order! There are now three distinct 3.1 releases: 3.2 Generation 1, 3.2 Generation 2, and 3.2 Generation 2 by 2! This is really frustrating! This disc, however, is USB 3.0. (or 3.1 gen 1, or 3.2 gen 1, or whatever you choose to call it).

It is possible to make an external drive bootable on a Mac by using a clone tool, such as Bombich Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC), and formatting the drive in Mac native format. For macOS to be bootable, it must be copied over. To pick a boot device during the boot process, you must press and hold the option key.
