Hi everyone, I'm trying to install windows on this 120gb WD green SSD and it says I can't because the drive is formatted as GPT or something. This has happened to me before with a different SSD as well. What can I do to fix this?
thanks!

  1. Why a 120GB?
  2. Why a WD Green? eww
  3. At what point in the below tutorial does it actually fail? Screencap, please.

By both partitions, do you mean the hard drive and SSD's partitions?
Cause there's like, 4 partitions. 3 on the ssd and one on the hard drive
sorry for the late reply btw, was busy all day yesterday
You install the OS with one and only one drive connected.
Presumably the SSD?

oh you do? Whenever I have an SSD + HDD you can always just select whichever drive is needed... right?

Edit: I see in the tutorial thats bad apparently, will do
