I tried a windows x32, x64, xp repair discs, but nothing works. I keep getting the same message "Your system recovery disc is not compatible with the operating system installed."
So here is what I did with the hopes that installing another windows x64 might detect the existing windows and give me the option to boot either one...
I left alone my windows x64 partition which I had restored from the paragon backup on the drive, then I installed my Windows XP Prof 32 bit on the unallocated space on the drive. So far so good, everything worked fine up until now.
Next, I booted my machine with the Windows x64 Ultimate upgrade DVD and tried to install that, now I am getting this message.
"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."
So I am not sure what to do here... Should I take a backup of my partitions and then using Paragon HDM, convert this disk from MBR to GPT or Is there any other thing I can test.
I would really like to get my initial Windows x64 to boot up.
I have a GIGABYTE MOBO with UEFI Dual Bios installed.
