Boot from partition?

I need to buy a new backup drive. For some reason my Maxtor is not bootable all of a sudden. On my most recent backup, Superduper copied everything over but the drive will not boot even though it has booted before. (I got the following message: "The disk you inserted was not readable by the computer.")

I was looking at a 500 gig hard drive today for a good price. Can I partition that drive and make a bootable drive on it or is it preferred to boot from a non-partitioned (and therefore smaller) drive?

Thanks for your help. Hope I am posting this newb question in the right place.
