Grid Infrastructure Installation and Upgrade Guide 19c doesn't mention GPT (GUID Partition Table).
Does Windows GPT DISK support for ASM?

=====================
Use a basic disk with a Master Boot Record (MBR) partition style as an extended partition for creating partitions.
Do not use spanned volumes or striped volumes. These options convert the volume to a dynamic disk. Oracle Automatic Storage Management does not support dynamic disks.
