How to force Win10 installer, when loaded in BIOS mode, to install over GPT? RRS feed

  • Question

  • A PC that has no EFI support, have succesfully installed another SO (a Linux distribution) over a GPT HDD, also in BIOS mode when installed and it have been installed and loads normally. Why the Windows 10 installer can't support GPT when loaded in BIOS mode?

    And no, i'm not going to move back to MBR, knowing all the GPT features, mainly the quantity of disk partitions can be made. This makes a headache to install Win10...
