So I got my USB Windows 10 installer working, but I can't get past the "Where do you want to install Windows" screen. I get this error message after selecting any drive:
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style.
Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted NTFS.
Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is of an unrecognized type.
I created my bootable USB using a program called Rufus on another Windows computer. I was sure to format my USB drive to NTFS
Rufus does not always work. Use procedure at http://www.intowindows.com/create-uefi-bootable-usb-of-windows-10/ to create your USB.
Suggest you disconnect all drives in your PC except the one you are installing Win10 on.
When asked where you want to install Win10, select the drive and click on the advanced tab.
Select each partition on the drive in the top pane and select delete until all partitions are deleted.
click on new volume, click on format, click on continue and install Win10.
