"reverse" word used for point out: drive's initialization doing by an order 1) create partitions first 2) format the partition(s) next; that poster described it in reverse order

 

[Windows OS added to that unnecessary tidbit - create a volume 'label' by placing time-stamp data into MBR, naming it as 'initialization' ]

 

you can't format unpartitioned space on drive, if you've been in IT you should knew that

 

I do know that, that's my entire point!  You're the one who didn't know enough and bought that the drive was formatted without a partition and claimed it was "reverse order".  Macs format drives just like anything else that formats a hard drive.  The OP was mistaken and you just assumed it happened that way and decreed that Macs did things in reverse.

I did go with poster's wording, not MacOS functioning. 

 

Perhaps it's time to re-tune to the topic ...

And you'd be wrong.  If you know as much as you claim to know then you know you MUST create a label, then a partition before a drive can be formatted.  Once again, a Mac is no different.

should we continue digging the hole outside the road ?

 

well, the point of creating a LABEL is useless IMO; it's a optional part (just 4 or 8 bytes) of MBR or GPT;

 

the snapshot above telling you: the OS will create a PARTITION first, then format it (regardless how it presenting to you on the screen)

 

 

 

you are ppl of new generation who are just reading icons and GUI presentation without knowledge how exactly programs/code is working ... perhaps you don't need the KNOWLEDGE :(

The disk label is not optional at all.  Without a label you can't create a partition and without a partition you can't format.   And when I say "disk label" I'm NOT talking about the name you give the drive.  Try using "parted" on a Linux box and then MAYBE you'll grasp the concept.

 

And FYI, I've been setting up hard drives before there was a GUI to be found on both PC's and Apples.

I believe you mean the IBM S/360.  And I'm not here to play your little games and have to pass your silly tests.
