I want to install Windows 7 on my laptop without deleting hard drive partitions and the recovery partition.

When I tried to install it, there was a message saying: "Windows cannot be installed to Disk 0 Partition 5 (show details)".

When I clicked to show details, it said: "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style."

How can I install Windows 7 on a GPT partition?


Laptop: Lenovo P500
