HARD DRIVE THAT HAS WINDOWS 8, and is GPT and....

Hello everyone.

I have a hard drive that has Windows 8 OS intalled on it but I want to delete all partitions and it to be changed from GPT to MBR so I can do a fresh install of Windows 7 on it.

Hard drive information is below:
HITACHI HDS721010CLA632 JPT41A SATA 6.0 1TB hard drive
Deskstar 7K1000.C HDS721010CLA632


I am not use to dealing with GPT hard drives.

Can someone help me wipe and delete all partitions including hidden factory backup images and all that is GTP style and change hard drive to MBR so I can install fresh Windows 7 on it.

Thank you all for any help.
