Fedora Initialize disklabel

What is the point of Fedora Initialize disklabel and how does it work?

How do I check what my current Fedora's disklabel is initialized to?

Recent versions of Fedora support either MBR, GPT or, if you really know what you are doing, hybrid MBR/GPT disk labels.

You can use parted or gdisk to manipulate either MBR or GPT disk labels or fdisk to manipulate MBR disk labels.
