    cannot install to either GPT or MBR


    I have a weird problem
    I made an ISO from a 10532 upgrade to install it on to another pc and here is what happens. Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style. OK, so I change my disk to MBR and get the same problem only this time it tells me the selected disk is of the MBR style. Either way it won't install
    What do I do now???? ?

    Hello qldaussie,

    If you were wanting to do a clean install of it, then you could delete all partitions on the disk until "unallocated" and select to install Windows to the unallocated disk.

    In that case, go ahead and post back with a screenshot showing the full layout of Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) to see what options you may have.

    Which drive letter are your trying to install build 10532 on?

    From what I see you should be able to install it using Legacy BIOS on D or G. You won't be able to use UEFI installation media.

    I can't see the size of F, but if that's 102 MB, then it won't be large enough.

    Yes it is "G" I want to install on. I even tried "C". My new laptop is original UEFI system but I changed the drive to MBR. So I boot from the DVD and it says my disk is GPT style. Whatever I change it to it will tell me the opposite. I am lost, truly

    How does it go if you delete G to leave it as "unallocated" space, then try to install Windows 10 on it using Legacy BIOS (not UEFI)?
