    Trouble installing 10

    Trying to install 10 preview build 9926 as a dual boot with Win 7. I have a separate blank hard drive for the Win 10. Using a DVD with the ISO burned on it.
    When I try to install after getting into "custom install" it states I can't install because my disks have the MBR setup and GPT is required for EFI systems.
    Can anybody tell me what's going on?

    Thanks Dude.
    Using Rufus to create setup on a USB drive worked. The Win 10 preview no longer required GPT disks.
    Installation of Win 10 preview was a success alongside Win 7 on a separate hard drive.
