Hi there Toms Hardware, I've recently formatted both of my drives, because I wanted a whole new clean install.. But the error showed up " You can't install windows on a MBR it has to be on a GPT disk. "

And then I have no clue because I can't get into anything but my BIOS.

Hope you can help me solve this problem, thanks.

I got some help where, i needed to press SHIFT + F10. at the installation of windows 7 where you format your drives. Then I needed to type some commands that I really cant remember, where i needed to select my c: drive
And then type Clean.
And then type something to "change to GPT" But I really cant remember. But Shift + F10 and type something in the commands.


FOUND IT here it is SCROLL DOWN TO OPTION TWO with the Prompt http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/26193-convert-mbr-...
