Hey, I was trying to install a windows 7 on my new computer (down from 8 which pc came with) so I formated my SSD hdd where the old OS was and after that, I tried to install it there, and it says the format on my HDD is wrong. Says its GPT and can't use it. Tried to reinstall windows 8 again. Same problem.

I don't get the option to change format on the HDD during install, just to delete and change size. Please help me out. Got the computer 3 days ago. :(

Can you attach the SSD to a different computer running Windows 7? If so, you could convert it to MBR. That way you should be able to install Windows 7.
