    Windows 10 Installation


    I can choose between UEFI and UEFI+Legacy BIOS mode. I have a Samsung SSD evo 128gb and don't know it's better MBR or GPT. Thanks.

    It really won't matter. What do you plan on using your system for?

    GPT is the modern technology and having much more advantages over MBR.
    • GPT can contain much more numbers of primary partitions on a disk.
    • It can handle lengthier partitions and disks.
    • It can recover boot records easier than MBR disks.
    • It is compatible with the UEFI, which is on all the new motherboards.

    If you have the facilities, better you opt for GPT. But as NavyLCDR said, it does not matter for domestic usage.

    Domestic usage. I want to use UEFI with SSD in GPT as OS. What usage GPT is planned for? Like Big company?

    Anybody can use GPT. Domestic users or companies.
    When you want to use a disk/partition much bigger, say 2.2 TB or more, you must to go for GPT. Or if you want to use the UEFI features of the motherboard, then you have to use GPT.

    You can use UEFI+GPT for your system. It works very good.
    If you face any troubles during the installation; or if you think you need to ask any more questions before doing the job, feel free to ask.

    @Arc explained it well, short & sweet.
    If you're interested in a more in-depth explanation of the differences in the two: GPT(UEFI) vs. MBR(BIOS),
    take a look at this TechNet article: Understanding Disk Partitions
