    There are 2 things you need to know if you want to install Windows using GPT partition scheme:
    1. Set your BIOS for UEFI. Some BIOS will have an option such as UEFI or MBR, some will have option as CSM. With CSM disabled, you are using UEFI, with CSM enabled, you are using MBR.
    2. When booting Windows installation, There are 2 options to select from DVD/USB installation disk:
      One prefixed with UEFI-USB and the other is just plain USB. Same as for DVD
      Attachment 95222
    3. Once the installation USB/DVD is booted. Based on what you select from the boot menu, windows will determine what type of installation you want to install. Click Customize, select the unallocated partition, click next to let Windows installation creates all needed partitions (Do not format) and set the Partition type correctly.
      Continue with the installation.

    Yes. That was my post few days ago but that was for MBR installation, that means OP must have set the BIOS for MBR. In your case, select the option with UEFI prefix then Windows will install using GPT.

    Main benefits of GPT over MBR are partition size, number of partitions, and resilience.
    2GB drives?? do they still exist?? I have used this size at the times of Win98....
    I am thinking you are talking about 2TB (tera byte).

    Disable CSM

    Boot device: UEFI only (I think)
    I'm not sure what the Optional ROM is on that board

    I'm not sure about Secure Boot - some say disable it for the install and others say that's not necessary.
    My best guess - disable it for the install, enable it afterwards.

    To verify: right click your C drive, select properties, in the new window select the hardware tab, in the list of drives find your HDD, highlight and select properties, in the new window select volumes, click populate, in the new window look for partition style. It should show you: GUID Partition Table (GPT).

    This is just not true. The decision to create a uefi gpt disk or legacy bios mbr disk depends on bios

    Some are legacy bios only older machines.

    Mjority are both usually bios selected.

    Some are uefi only (newer devices)

    Windows 8/10 does not require secure boot to be disabled - indeed you should leave it enabled really.

    I think so, but you should wait for other members to confirm.

    While you wait, review the Clean install tutorial in post# 10

    I don't have a dog in this race, so I'm leaving it up to other members and debgram.

    As I said, some say disable it for the install and others say that's not necessary

    You fall into the latter category

    I'm not saying that you're wrong, I trust the tutorials for best results
    warning   Warning
    Before you get started installing Windows 10, be sure that you temporarily disable Secure Boot and Fast Boot in your UEFI firmware settings until finished. Some motherboards do not support booting from a USB flash drive with these enabled.

    Once installation has finished, you can enable Secure Boot and Fast Boot again if you like.

    I'm bowing out and will watch from the sideline, don't have more to add.

    Best of luck debgram - there are good members posting in your thread that can help you more than I can.
