  1. Problems installing windows 10 Pro on desktop after replacing hard drive


    I have installed a replacement Hard Drive on my Acer PC and tried installing Windows 10 Pro using the tool downloaded from the website.

    When I select the new hard drive from the list displayed it says it cannot install on this drive because it is GPT Partitioned.

    How do I get round this?

    :)

    Replacing old hard drive, need way to copy Windows installation across

    Hey Guys,
    What would be the best way of copying/imaging the entire contents of an old system drive over to a replacement hard disk for the same machine? I need to copy the Windows installations and all other data to the new drive, and then format the old drive to use as a backup.

    Any suggestions? *Smile Problems installing windows 10 Pro on desktop after replacing hard drive :)
