Edit: thanks for the help guys. got it fixed.



This one, OP! I had the exact same problem a couple of weeks ago and I solved it with these instructions.

An alternative solution that I found pretty easy:

Windows truyền thông media creation tool comes with a commvà window. Use 1 line of code khổng lồ format the desired drive sầu khổng lồ the required format, then install Windows.

Useful information, Reformatting the drive using a different partition style worked for me, thank you :)

All systems for the past few years have sầu been UEFI. If your BIOS screen is fancy with different colours và mouse tư vấn then it's UEFI. What you think of as BIOS isn't proper BIOS unless it's got a xanh background and white text only. (And even then it might still be UEFI).

Simplest solution is lớn boot inlớn UEFI Legacy BIOS mode. Just don't choose USB Stiông xã or DVD Rom drive when you boot the installation truyền thông media.

Next solution is lớn repartition the disk you want khổng lồ install on as GPT, but you might need another computer for that.

or a bootable flash drive with a linux distro and gparted, you would need another device to lớn create that, but no moving the drive around.

When you've sầu booted from the USB and see your disks; Delete all partitions on the disk, select the unallocated space, and install khổng lồ that. Don't format.
