    My numbers are different, but all seems to be running just fine. This is my disk now. (8/9/2015), a clean install from media.

    confused about selecting boot device

    This is good information but I am confused about step 2 below. Wouldn't I need to select whatever device, USB or DVD, the install media is on at this point and not how I want the final install to boot?
    Thanks,and sorry for dragging up an old post but it had most of the info I was looking for.

    It is up to you whether you want to install Windows using MBR or GPT and you need to set the option in the BIOS for MBR or GPT style installation.

    Having said that. Here's the steps:
    1. Disconnect all HD/SSD except the one you will be installing Windows
    2. From the boot menu, Select #1 for GPT or select #2 for MBR to boot up the Windows Installation
      Attachment 29081
      NOTE: The screen is an example and might look different from yours
    3. Once the Windows Installation started. On the first screen, Press and hold SHIFT Key + F10, a command Windows will popup then type:
      - diskpart
      - select disk 0
      - Clean
      - Exit
      - Exit
    4. Click Next to continue.
    5. Select Custom
    6. Select the first unallocated partition and click next. Windows will create all needed partitions to install Windows 10
    7. Follow all the rest of the instruction to complete.

    MBR installation:
    1. 500MB System Reserved partition
    2. C: Drive

    GPT installation:
    1. 450MB recovery partition
    2. 100MB EFI System Partition
    3. 16MB MSR partition
    4. C drive.

    At step 2 you will select which device you want to boot from, USB flash drive or DVD. On some systems you will also have the choice how you want to boot it, UEFI or legacy BIOS.

    The choice of how you boot from the installation device determines whether Windows sets up the SSD/HDD as GPT for UEFI booting or MBR for legacy BIOS booting.

    thank you NavyLCDR

    I was a bit confused as the attached image (which doesn't seem to show up on a quoted reply) shows both options 1 and 2 at what appears to be a SSD drive and not on either a USB drive or DCD if I am seeing it right.

    My Boot menu screen will give me the 2 install options, I believe this is because I have 3 options in my Bios

    UEFI only
    Legacy & UEFI
    Legacy only

    and I have it set to Legacy & UEFI

    As long as I have a bare install drive, I could choose either one and not have any issues, but I always create an install partition and use Legacy mode.
