Windows 7: New unknown Error code READ MORE!

New unknown Error code READ MORE!

While installing windows 8 i ran into an error. It said that this disk is mbr and is needed to be converted to gpt. So I tried formatting it and it said

We couldn't create a new partition [error:0xc983c160] <- googled it and no results at all.

I went to cmd and tried to convert mbr to gpt manually.
Gave me: Virtual drive error:This specific drive cannot be converted. Example: dvds and cds cannot be converted
It is not a virtual machine,it is the real hdd.

now i have no other option, is there any other way to format the harddrive to its original factory defualts?

I do not have a recovery disk.
