How to partition on MacOs for installing centOS 7?

Hello, i am trying to install centOS 7, a distribution of 2017, on mackbook pro. I tried to partition and add a volume that the format is MS-DOS(FAT). But when i boot on my usb drive and tried to select the disk for installation the system, i cannot find the new partition. Should i try partition disk in different format?

Thank you!
