I'm trying to install windows on my brand new SSD drive. It failed a couple times and now it says, "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, windows can only be installed to GPT disks." What does that mean? Is the SSD drive junk? Any help resolving this issue would be much appreciated.
