Initialize, partition and format disks using PowerShell

I ran into this good blogpost about using PowerShell to Initialize Raw Disks, and to Partition and Format Volumes.

To summarize, you can initialize raw disks and partition and format volumes using the following simple PowerShell “script”:
Get-Disk | Where partitionstyle -eq ‘raw’ | Initialize-Disk -PartitionStyle MBR -PassThru | New-Partition -AssignDriveLetter -UseMaximumSize | Format-Volume -FileSystem NTFS -NewFileSystemLabel “disk2” -Confirm:$false
