Installing windows 7

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm trying to install windows 7 x64 onto my SSD (Intel 520 60gb), but it keeps saying "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style." and I can't install the OS please help... What am I suppose to do?

(My CPU is a 2500K and my motherboard is a P8Z77-v Pro)

Thank you.

Don't know if this will help you guys understand but I'll write it anyway (this is what the screen is telling me right now... ):

Disk 0 Partition 1 | 128.0 MB | 128.0 MB | MSR (Reserved)
Disk 0 Unallocated Space | 465.6 GB | 465.6 GB | ___________
Disk 1 Partition 1 | 100.0 MB | 100.0 MB | System
Disk 1 Partition 2 | 128.0 MB | 128.0 MB | MSR (Reserved)
Disk 1 Partition 3 | 55.7 GB | 55.6 GB | Primary

Thank you again..

Did you partition the drive manually?

No I don't think I did... I just wanted to reformat my computer but the first time I installed my OS on the SSD, I didn't have this problem..

Thank you for your help, I found my answer somewhere else.

Actually no, now I got another error:

Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300024

....

EDIT2: nevermind it's all good, I only had to wipe both of the drives. haha
