    It supports both depending on what firmware your PC has (UEFI or BIOS). 8 can also be installed on MBR disk.

    I believe if your BIOS is set to UEFI, not Legacy then it requires a GPT drive for boot but I think you can have MBR for data (non-bootable) disks. I also seem to remember something about Secure Boot requiring GPT.

    The above is what I remember reading here and in other places. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Good info here: Windows and GPT FAQ (Windows Drivers)

    I believe you can't run both GPT and MBR disks on the same machine. I could be wrong but just something to watch out for in case you run into problems.

    Thanks for clarifying that. I haven't done so.
