    My advice: If your Windows works fine, do not re-install Windows.

    But next time you know what to do.
    Will do.

    Just to make sure so I won't get confused next time:
    Basically, I'll have to boot into UEFI mode the next time I install windows.
    Then format my drive > Click "New" > Then Apply (like you showed here: https://www.tenforums.com/attachments/installation-setup/114592d1482528428-efi-system-recovery-partitions-wrong-drive-i-ran-search-select-new-button.png )

    And then pick "Primary" from the Partition list and click Install.

    It will install the windows on GPT scheme?

    Yes, if your hard disk has four partitions:

    - Recovery
    - System
    - MSR (Reserved)
    - Primary
