Comment (by umccullough):

 Replying to [comment:6 Luposian]:
 > Do I initialize using "Intel Partition Map..." or "Be File System..."?

 Both.

 First partition the disk (create one big partition if you like), then
 initialize the partition as BFS.

 Initializing a raw drive without first creating partitions tends to create
 issues down the road. Without a partition table you will have no MBR, and
 cannot therefore install a bootloader.
