Default NetBSD installation problems

NetBSD installator says I have 0B free on my disk, but actually I have some unallocated space, I got an idea to create the disklabel and create root partition in sysinst, but I just need to know is disklabel needed on GPT, or is it possible to install NetBSD to a normal partition like FreeBSD or Linux? I'm going to create a partition/disklabel and setup it in the sysinst. Thanks

The bootloading scheme is set by your motherboards bios. Usually gpt/uefi can be set to read an MBR partition so they are effectively backwards compatible.

NetBSD can be installed either gpt/uefi or MBR. Download the regular image for gpt/uefi and the "bios" image for MBR
