    I accidently deleted every drive. the only thing present is UNALLOCATED SPACE of 298.1 gb. I tried to install windows 8 in unallocated space. but after installation it does not boot. Just BLACK Screen. I tried creating partitions of system reserved and primary partition.When I try to install in the primary partition, it says "Windows cannot be installed. the selected disk is of Gpt partition"
    I cant convert it to mbr
    for converting it to mbr the disk should be cleaned, but after that I dont know how to create system reserved partition with mbr

    That's wierd, the installer should have created all the partition it needs. I suspect the issue is with secure boot.

    Try installing windows 7 instead. If windows 7 works, then you can upgrade to 8 from there.
