    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

    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.
