    "Windows 10 couldn't be installed"


    Hi,


    I have been receiving the following error notification for the past couple of weeks, in Windows 10:


    "Windows can't be installed because this PC has an unsupported disk layout for UEFI firmware."


    I've been putting off resolving it, in fear it would require reformatting my OS's hard drive, but I heard there's a way to resolve this issue, without data loss.


    I have Windows 10 Home installed to a 500GB SSD.


    Can someone provide me with some help on how to resolve the issue?


    Thanks

    :)

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
