When trying to install Windows to new drive, I run into this:  Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style. 

 

Online, I found some pretty good help here: http://www.disk-partition.com/articles/selected-disk-is-gpt-partition-style.html, but I'm very nervous about trying it. One thing is because I have to input the partition size, and I don't know what to put there. The drive is 1TB. Can I just use that? Or is there some tech term for 1TB or . . .?

 

Anyone have any simpler way?   - No, I can't download and install something to do it for me because I don't have the computer up and running.
