Hello Bakchr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could run the "clean" command on the SSD to wipe it clean to be unallocated space, then be able to install Windows 7 on it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hey guys thanks! But I fixed the problem using my Xbox to configure and then using the computer to re-format.

Thanks For The Solution :D

After I installed Chromium OS on my internal hard disk, it wasn't booting. So, I decided to overwrite it with Windows 8. But when I was installing it, I got an error that the disk was of GPT format. Then I formatted the partition but of no use. I was afraid a lot! What should I do now?!!! What should I do now?!!! I was thinking. Then spending a lot of time at Google for solution, at last I got this site. The Command Prompt method helped me a LOT LOT LOT!!!!!! Thanks! I was almost DEAD!!!

How to Convert a GPT Disk to a MBR Disk

Hi BRINK ,
Thank you for this tutorial I have read with great interest .
I myself am stuck with a compatibility problem with Windows 8 ( upgraded from Windows 7 ) and would like to revert to Windows 7 . I can't convert the system disk back to MRB in the Computer Manager since it is the primary one . I was thinking to format it in NTFS on my second computer , replace it in my first one and use a system repair disc to reinstall an image of my previous Windows 7 system . Would this work ?
Thank you for your attention .
Best regards ,
fanaudi
