Ubuntu: the selected disc is of gpt partition style error


I want to install windows 8, but I am getting this error the selected disc is of gpt partition style. I already have Ubuntu 14.04 install with UEFI boot.

I have 3 partition in the order of:

  1. UEFI boot partition

  2. Ubuntu

  3. free space

what to do next?


Just a note: This is a Windows 8.* error, not an Ubuntu one, so it's better suited to a Windows forum.

The question has been asked and answered here, so see if the answers on that forum resolve it for you.


Windows 8 does support GPT. What you need is to format your USB installation drive to GPT. Use Rufus.
