Usually the post-MBR gap (after the 512 byte MBR region and before the start of the first partition) in many MBR (or 'msdos' disklabel) partitioned systems is 31 Ki B when DOS compatibility cylinder alignment issues are satisfied in the partition table.
However a post-MBR gap of about 1 to 2 Mi B is recommended to provide sufficient room for embedding GRUB's (FS#24103).
In fdisk or gdisk create a new partition starting at sector 34 and spanning to 2047 and set the type.
To have the viewable partitions begin at the base consider adding this partition last.
