Windows 7 professional x64


Could you please help! I have deleted all partitions even Partitions 1,2,3.

I'm getting this error message
"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This selected disk is of the GPT partition style"

What to do?!

Many thanks

You could have booted Windows in legacy mode, boot in UEFI mode. For instructions please reply.

Please edit your profile with ALL hardware details.

Did it came with win 10?
Are you trying to install win 7?
Is your computer a skylake or Kabylake?

Thank you for your replies, I have fixed the issue.

I was working with IDE mode, once I have switched it to UEFI mode, I was able to install Windows on the device.

Many thanks again :)
