    But the question is that I can't do that, I have no choice.

    I burn the W10 iso to the pendrive with the Micrisoft tool (W7 USB DVD Download Tool is called) and I can't install it when it is GPT partition system or when CSM is enabled (doesn't even read the pendrive)...

    This is a nightmare.
    Try Rufus. It works great. UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

    You dont need to wipe up the HDD. Follow the Partition Wizard technique to convert it to GPT.

    And which option should I choose in Rufus?

    Thank you very much.

    You have to do it using PW boot CD as stated in post #14 earlier.

    New problem. After a very slow donwnload of the .iso, apparently I need a tool called Bootable Media Builder to burn it in my USB flash drive, but I can't see where to find it. There is a button for creating a bootable CD on the top right corner of Partition Wizard, but when I click on it, nothing happens. Any idea how I could burn the iso? Thank you very much.

    How to build Boot CD/DVD Discs and Boot Flash Drive with Bootable Media Builder?
