I zero'd a 2TB external drive I'll be using with a new iMac, chosen GUID partition scheme and formatted as Mac OS Extended Journaled and selected 1 partition.  The partition progress bar has not moved for a half hour, it's in the first tenth of the progress bar's length and hasn't moved since I clicked "Partition"

 

How long should partitioning/one partition take?  I didn't name the volume(necessary?), and I see at the bottom left, the Partition Scheme says Apple Partition Map although I chose GUID.  Since I'm preparing this external drive on a PPC for the Intel iMac is this the hangup---I can't GUID partition on a PPC?
