Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun, SGI or OSF disk label
Building a new DOS disklabel with disk identifier 0xa5f20199.                     
Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.               
After that, of course, the previous content won’t be recoverable.                 
 
Warning: invalid flag 0x0000 of partition table 4 will be corrected by w(rite)
