    DiskPart <ENTER>
    list disk <ENTER>
    select disk 0 <ENTER>
    clean <ENTER>
    create partition primary align=1024 <ENTER>
    format fs=ntfs <ENTER> (Will Take a While)
    assign <ENTER>
    active <ENTER>
    exit <ENTER>
    exit <ENTER>
  5. After it completes, exit the INSTALL COMPLETELY and reboot.
  6. Once you are back in, go about installing Windows just DO NOT ALLOW Windows to create a new partition, use the only one there.
  7. Windows will now install

How long have you had this hard drive, the usual reason you get that message is because you are trying to install to a GPT partitioned drive.

If it is a GPT disk, it must be converted to MBR.

That is the error if you're trying to re-install a windows 7 on a machine with a pre-installed windows 8 or 8.1 OS.

If someone could give you the link on the tutorial, i cant find it.

Were you able to install Win7? If so please report back what worked so it will help others.

If not look at Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7.
