Installing Windows 7 over Windows 8 Dell Inspiron 660s
So i tried reformatting with Windows 7 and got an error message that said: Windows cannot be installed on the selected partition because it is of the GPT partition style.
So I looked into that and found a program called GParted that allows partition management, so i formatted the drive to NTFS, wiping all the other partitions and now having just the one main partition. Now, windows 7 installs, but when it reboots after the setup window, the computer says No Bootable Devices found, but it sees the harddrive and cd drive.
So i went back through setup AGAIN, and this time i got this message which did not allow to install windows 7: Windows cannot be installed on this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, windows can only be installed to GPT disks.
Any ideas on how to go about installing Windows 7 on this system?
