    Cannot perform disk partition on Windows 7

    When I try to choose which partition needs to be used after installing Windows 7 into my PC, I keep getting the message saying “windows cannot be installed to disk 0 partitions 2. (Show details)”. I clicked on the ‘Show details’ button and got the message “windows cannot be installed on this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style”. How can I get rid of this error message?

    Delete all hard drive partitions from your system and set up a new partition. Insert Windows DVD and boot up your PC. Click on the ‘Install Now’ button and select ‘Custom (Advanced)’ option from the setup screen. Make a single click on the ‘Drive Options’ and choose the partition you want to format. You can then delete all partitions by clicking on the ‘Format’ option. Create a new partition after that for installing Windows and go on with the installation process. If this solution does not work, re-format the drive. Download Gparted ISO for that and burn it into a disk. Boot from that disk afterwards and delete all partitions using Gparted. Set up a new partition table by selecting ‘Create Partition Table’ under ‘Device’ option. Create NTFS partition and boot your system from Windows install disk to install Windows.

    Re: Cannot perform disk partition on Windows 7

    This is due to low disk space on that drive or corrupt file system issue.. The only way to get rid of this is to install a clean windows in your hard drive... Delete all Drives and then make new drives from unallocated space to do so follow the instructions..
    1) insert bootable windows disk or USB drive.
    2) restart your pc and hit F9 till you enter the boot menu. in the boot menu section choose your preferred drive to boot optical/USB Hard Disk.
    3) wait until windows load files.
    4) Click install Now Button.
    5) Click Custom Option from the next menu that appear.
    6) Click on the Drive options and delete all partitions 1 by 1.
    7) Now click new from the drive option to make new drives and allocate the required spaces in MB for each drive.
    8) choose the drive in which you want to install windows and hit next.
    9) wait till it installs windows.

    Note- windows will make an extra drive of 100mb for its own files which is hidden in your computer (do not delete it) it is default.

    Installing to GPT disks requires EFI hardware.

    Boot from the Windows DVD
    2. Click Install Now
    3. At the setup screen, click Custom (Advanced)
    4. Click Drive Options
    5. Select the partition(s) you want to format
    6. Click Format - this will delete EVERYTHING on that partition
    7. Create a new partition and select a partition to install Windows on.
    8. Continue with install
