The hard drive itself won't care one way or the other.
I know Windows 7 can make a GPT HD and requires EFI to boot. What I want to know is, after I've installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode, how can I check if my HD is in GPT or MBR

I know that, but I want
to make it in GPT anyway.
Please answer my question, thanks. Edited by link_90 - 2/21/11 at 3:25am
