When I connect the drive with my Mac (I'm running on OSX 10.11.4), I can see that the total drive size is 500GB like below: But, only first partition appeared and I can't see the second partition (GPT) one. What should I do now to read and access that GPT partition? Running diskutil list command from terminal give me this. GPT (GUID Partition Table) It also includes the total number of partitions in that partition table. This identifier marks a Mac OS X partition used in a. GUID Partition Table (GPT) is a partitioning scheme that is part of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface specification; the GPT scheme is required. GPT is a new standard, and gradually replace the MBR. GPT has brought a lot of new features, but still has the best compatibility MBR. The new standard is not Windows-specific GPT – Mac OS X, Linux, and other operating systems also use GPT. Before using the new disk, you must be partitioned.Hi there, dansk12345,
Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. From your post, I understand that you are trying to set up a GPT (GUID Partition Table) with your flash drive. I'm happy to help!

Make sure that your storage device is properly formatted
For best results, your external hard drive, thumb drive, SDHC or SDXC card, or other storage device should be formatted as Mac OS Extended, not FAT, ExFAT, or NTFS. And to function as a startup disk, it needs to be using a GUID partition map. Here's how to check:
- Connect your external storage device to your Mac.
- Choose Apple menu () > About This Mac, then click the System Report button. Or hold down the Option key and choose Apple menu > System Information.
- Select Storage from the sidebar, then select your storage device from the list of volumes. Make sure that the Partition Map Type shown for your storage device is GPT (GUID Partition Table):
If your storage device isn't using a GUID partition map, you can follow these steps to create one with Disk Utility.This deletes all of the data stored on your device.
- If you're using OS X El Capitan or later, select your external storage device in Disk Utility. (Select the disk name, not the volume name indented beneath it.) Then click Erase and choose the GUID partition map scheme and any Mac OS Extended format before erasing.
- If you're using OS X Yosemite or earlier, select your external storage device in Disk Utility. (Select the disk name, not the volume name indented beneath it.) Click the Partition tab, select your partition, then click the Options button. Select GUID Partition Table before partitioning.
