Windows cannot be installed to this disk. the selected disk is of the gpt partition style

This error message appears when you are trying to install Windows on a disk that has a GPT partition style, but your computer's BIOS is set to run in Legacy BIOS mode instead of UEFI mode. To resolve this issue, you can try the following steps:


1. Make sure your computer supports UEFI mode. Check the documentation of your computer or motherboard to see if it supports UEFI mode.


2. Change the BIOS settings to UEFI mode. You can usually access the BIOS settings by pressing a key (such as F2, F12, or Delete) during startup. Look for an option to change the boot mode to UEFI.


3. Convert the disk to MBR partition style. If you cannot change the BIOS settings to UEFI mode, you can convert the disk to MBR partition style using disk management software such as EaseUS Partition Master, MiniTool Partition Wizard, or AOMEI Partition Assistant.


Note that converting the disk to MBR partition style will erase all data on the disk, so make sure to backup your data before proceeding.

If you are encountering the error message "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style" during the installation of Windows, there are a few things you can try to fix the issue:


1. Check if your computer supports UEFI boot mode. GPT partition scheme is only supported by UEFI boot mode, so if your computer is using the Legacy BIOS boot mode, you will need to switch to UEFI mode. To check if your computer supports UEFI boot mode, you can refer to the documentation for your computer or motherboard.

The exact steps to do this will vary depending on your computer's manufacturer and model, but usually, you can access the BIOS settings by pressing a key (such as F2, F12, or Delete) during startup. Look for an option to change the boot mode to UEFI.


3. Convert the disk to MBR partition style. If you cannot change the boot mode to UEFI, you can convert the disk from GPT partition style to MBR partition style using disk management software such as EaseUS Partition Master, MiniTool Partition Wizard, or AOMEI Partition Assistant. Note that converting the disk to MBR partition style will erase all data on the disk, so make sure to backup your data before proceeding.


4. Delete all partitions on the disk. During the Windows installation process, you can delete all partitions on the disk and create a new partition with the correct partition style (GPT or MBR) for your system.
