Mini Tool Partition Wizard initalize before install win7 ultimate

first of all . thanks barefoot kid. what would be the better initalization mbr or gpt?
hard drives are 1tb each showing up as basic unallocated 931.5gb raw.

would recommend mbr or gpt?.

thinking about mbr. isn't that a ntfs format old master boot record type.
would win7 run better on gpt?

I would recommend you stick with MBR.

+1.

Stick with MBR.

Now I have a question.
The title of your post had no association with the content of your post.

Was this an oversight?

As you have a EFI-BIOS, you can use GPT or MBR.

If you boot drives > 2TB then consider GPT.
I have a high end ASUS motherboard with UEFI BIOS and still use MBR. My rationale is to avoid possible compatability problems at this stage of UEFI rollout and I don't want large OS drives.
