Question

Im reformatting and reinstalling Windows 8.
I've always installed it on my Samsung 830 128gb SSD
When I boot up Windows 8, and try to select where to install windows, My SSD is broken up into
Drive 0 Partition 1: System Reserved 350MB/90.MB free (Type Secondary)
Drive 0 Partition 2: 107GB/107GB Free (Type Primary)
Drive 0 Unallocated Space 11.9GB/11.9GB (No Type)

I am not sure if this layout is right. I've always had my Windows 8 On Drive 0 Partition 2. However now it says Windows can't be installed on drive 0 partition 2.. The select disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed on GPT disks.


How do I fix this?

Delete all the partitions on your ssd using the windows 8 disc, backing any important info of course, then install windows 8 onto the ssd, it will re-create all the partitions it needs for you.As a precaution, I always disconnect any other ssd/hdd in my system when installing a new o/s
