I just got done installing my new motherboard, processor, and ram. I'm still using my old HDD, and I'm trying to do a clean install of windows but when I get to the window that asks what HDD I want to install windows it says 'The selected drive has an MBR partition table.' and it won't allow me to install on that drive. >.> I only have this one HDD so I dunno what to do. Is there something else I need to do since I'm using new parts that dont have the driver software installed to the HDD?

EDIT: It also says 'On EFI systems, WIndows can only be installed to GPT disks.' right after the MBR partition crap.

EDIT 2: Now when I restart my computer it just says 'failed to start windows' and tells me to do a system restore which I can't because of the MBR partitioning stuff. Think my HDD might be dead. Someone halp.
