Windows 7: Trying to reformat Samsung 850 1TB Windows 7 64 as UEFI/GPT

Hi,
Yep I don't see a lot of reasons to install windows on a 1tb ssd anyway unless we're talking about a laptop
Your spec's page shows a custom build not laptop

But I do see the simplicity of using a single large disk I use a 500gb ssd so I guess it makes sense after all
GPT though is whack and unnecessary.
