Welcome noobs, to your GuideFather, Suddenly you woke up and thought of installing Windows 10 in your older window 7 system, you do exactly as instructed in our article but suddenly you see an annoying message while selecting the Drive: Window can't be installed in this disk. The selected disk has MBR partition table.On EFI systems, windows can only be installed to GPT disk. Or for any other reason, you may want to convert your MBR partition to GPT. You are at the right place.

Step 1:

Open command prompt
Don't get confused, You just need to Hold SHIFT KEY and Press F10 i.e SHIFT+F10 at the exact screen you are getting the error

Step 2:

Now You have access to command prompt , which is great but you have to know the steps and commands to use otherwise what's the use of getting a key of your dad's car if you don't know how to drive.
so just type the following commands:

diskpart
diskpart is basically a command tool that uses all the commands related to your drives or disk.
after you hit that enter button you have to type next command:

list disk
now you have list all the DISKS, not the DRIVES, even the disk you are using as a bootable media.
Identify the disk you want to install Windows most probably the disk 0.

Warning: The next steps will erase everything form that entire DISK not Partition or Drives but the entire DISK make sure you have a backup of all your important data

Now  type :
select disk 0(or the disk you want to install the windows in)
After you press enter its time to clean everything in the disk so by putting the rock in your heart type:

clean
this time you press enter there is no going back
now type:

convert gpt

then execute the exit command twice.


In summary:
  1. Shift+F10
  2. diskpart
  3. list disk
  4. select disk 0
  5. clean
  6. convert gpt
  7. exit
  8. exit





now press the refresh button on the panel
you will see one unallocated space equal to your disk,that's your disk converted in to GPT partition.
now create as many drives as you want in it as it's converted into GPT partiton table.
then select drive to install the windows, You won't get any errors.
