I would like to know how to create a ntfs partition on /dev/sdx. I could not figure out if I should use partition type 7 86 or 87.
What is the full list of commands to use?

create a partition using
create a ntfs fileystem on /dev/sdx1:
mkfs.ntfs -f /dev/sdx1
-f argument makes the command run fast, skipping both the bad block check and the zeroing of the storage)
mount it wherever you want
mount /dev/sdx1 /mnt/myNtfsDevice
