Q: Windows 7 - The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks This thread is locked from future replies

When trying to install W7 in 64-bit form using an Intel DP45SG mainboard.  I get the error message "The selected disk has an MBR partition table.  On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks."

I have a new (SATA) hard drive that I am trying to install to.  I guess I need to do something to change the formatting/partitioning.  Where do I go from here?

I installed the W7 32-bit version and it works like a champ.

Answer

A:

Try forcing the computer to boot the Windows 7 setup disc in BIOS mode, versus EFI mode. Just hit ESC when booting up to take you into the EFI boot manager and select the DVD-DRIVE, versus the
ACPI(....) string.
