    Windows 10 installation error

    I am trying to install windows 10 on a system with no os and I got the error that windows can only be installed on a gpt disk so I converted it to GBT from MBR now its give me the error that a new partition can not be created or found. I have tried using the diskpart to solve it but its not working.
    Please how can I solve this and fully install windows 10 on my system

    Disconnect everything except mouse, keyboard, the HD/SSD you plan to install Windows and the installation USB/DVD.

    If you want to install using GPT disk. Access BIOS then:
    1. Disable CSM & Secure Boot.
    2. Set first boot device to boot from the installation USB/DVD with UEFI prefix ex: UEFI-Sandisk
      NOTE: If booting from Boot Menu, Select one with UEFI prefix.
    3. Once booted, on first screen, press SHIFT+F10 to open Command prompt and type:
      select disk 0
    4. Continue the installation->Custom->Select unallocated disk (Do not format)->Click Next

    If you want to install using MBR disk, Access BIOS then:
    1. Enable CSM
    2. Set first boot device to one without UEFI prefix.
      NOTE: If booting from Boot Menu, Select one without UEFI prefix.
    3. Do steps 3 & 4 above.

    Thank you so much topgundcp, I used the option for the gpt disk and disabled both secure boot and the legacy boot options and now its installing. Thanks a lot you just save a life.
