Hi everyone


I have a Samsung EVO ssd. My issues is I'm trying to reinstall Windows 7 on this drive but not able to because Windows won't allow, giving me this 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 disk."


So I need help to resolve this issue. Can anyone help?

There is a simpler alternative to convert this to GPT.  This involves downloading and using AOMEI Partition Assistant.  The AOMEI website has a comprehensive tutorial for doing this process, you can read it here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
