Windows 10 upgrade issue from Windows 8
HP pro 3515 series MT
HP Product # E3S56UT#aba
I did the upgrade as directed. Everything seemed to work OK. Then one day I no longer had the use of anything on my task bar and Start Button
To fix this, I did a restore to a date before the problem. I backed up all of my data, and tried to recover windows. That failed.
Next, thinking that a clean install of 10 would fix everything, I went on the Microsoft Website and downloaded Windows 10 to a flash drive. Rebooted and started the install.
The error message below is where I am at. And I am not a happy camper.
On the Windows set up screen I selected Drive 0 / partition 2 OS/ primary
I did not choose to format... just went to next.
The error message: "windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table on EFI system. Windows can only be installed to GPT disks. "
What does this mean? If I wipe the drive, will I be able to install Windows 10? And If I install windows 10 after wiping the drive, will it be recognized as Genuine?
