Not required for disk size smaller than 2TB.

MBR partition layout have addressing limitation of 2TB, when using MBR on a disk larger than 2TB, disk space after the first 2TB would be inaccessible.

Disk larger than 2TB needed GPT partition layout in order to access all the disk space, thus require UEFI mode to boot from GPT partition layout disk.

If everything in your computer is UEFI ready then it is strongly advised to use GPT+UEFI for future-proof compatibility.

I suggest to use MBR for Win7 to enable better 開心 capability
