Let's say pre-APFS, will a Mac boot from a ExFAT formatted drive?


Boot what OS?

If you mean MacOS, I'm pretty sure you can't install in on ExFAT, since it requires filesystem capabilities that aren't there. Same would go for any other Unix-type OS.

Windows, maybe. Probably depends on the version - read up on Bootcamp or the VM of your choice.

Other OS's? <shrug>. Try installing it and see.
