Win7 can use GPT, but by default the Win7 installer creates an MBR
schema, especially when it does not detect a UEFI boot. That's what I
have been told by our Windows admins. They say Win7 can be forced to
create a GPT schema, but you have to resort to manual disk

FreeBSD being the second or third OS in the dualboot, you know, I have
to deal with what I already have.
