    Ok thank you very much. I will hav to wait some time before I can wipe the disk again, but I think I got it finally if you didn't disagree with my last post.

    THANKS TO ALL.

    Thanks a lot @Arc.

    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.

    Now, if you want to keep the D drive intact, get the PW Boot CD (as the C drive is there in the same HDD, the installed version of PW will not do the operation). Follow it: How to Convert MBR Disk to GPT Disk | MiniTool Partition Wizard Tutorial

    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.
