Whether they *can* boot an Intel Mac doesn't mean they're supported in that capacity. Apple's been pretty explicit in what they want used here, and it's GPT/GUID (which are the only ones that can be selected in the Startup Disk Preference Pane).

And, yes - the pane will allow you to select a drive that won't start your Mac, but not one that isn't bootable for *something*.
