    If it's working and has been used to startup your MacBook, it's GUID. You can check by going to System Profiler and clicking on Serial-ATA.

    oh ok thanks a lot guys. i was clicking the name i made for the drive not the actual drive itself so i couldnt see what partition. i just got a little nervous because i knew i never picked guid like i usually do and i installed all of my data so i didnt want to have to restart haha.
