    Hey guys. I'm trying to install windows 7 onto my new sandybridge system.
    When i boot from disk and try to install on my F3 it say i can't.
    It tell me that my partition is MBR and that it needs to be GDP for the EFI bios.

    Can anybody tell me how to just wipe the drive or how to get a GDP partition?
    Thanks guys, This really has me stumped :sigh:

    in the windows installer, once it shows available disks, you should be able to choose advanced, then delete partition for any that are there. failing that you can fire up something like gparted live linux to take care of it.
