1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    I was running the Windows Technical Preview on an old hard drive in my computer which I was able to boot to during start up using Boot Manager. Unfortunately the drive has failed and I bought a new hard drive and a Samsung solid state drive and installed them in my computer. When I try to install the Technical Preview from a bootable dvd the installation fails with the message about GPT partition style.
    I would sure appreciate some assistance with solving my problem.

    Windows 10 requires UEFI to boot from GPT disks. The easiest workaround is to create an MBR disk.
