Need assistance to dual boot Windows10 with Windows7?

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

I am getting an error “Windows cannot be installed because of GPT Partition Type” while trying to dual boot Win10 with my current OS Win7. My C drive is shrunk by 80,000 MB volume and custom install option is selected to install Windows 10. But when I selected the drive and then selected new to create the partition I receive this error. I need someone to kindly assist me for the same.

The simplest way to solve this problem is by converting your disk from GUID Partition Table (GPT) to Master bootable Record (MBR) using AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional software and this can be as follows:

1) Download and install "AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional" software into your computer

2) Right click on "Basic GPT" disk, select "convert to MBR disk" option and click okay

3) Click "Apply" from main menu to commit changes
