Already tried updating on a weekly basis, installing old AND new graphics drivers after using DDU, cortana won't fucking leave me alone, and there's always high disk usage going on 90% of the time. I just wanna go back to when things were simple and didn't want to make me blow my head off.

At this point it essentially is.

I don't even care about the botnet desu, I just want a working functional computer again.

you need to make a windows7 usb drive that boot from uefi or you need to fix your windows10

I should have listened /g/, there was literally NOTHING wrong with the windows 7 I had.

you are an idiot my friend
we are telling you to make a UEFI (this is important) windows 7 usb stick

>> No.68630521

There is nothing wrong with GPT. You need to boot the install disc in UEFI mode. Disable legacy MBR booting in the motherboard settings and try again faggot. If your board is still MBR, then you are a retard for wanting to boot GPT disks.

>> No.68630542

99.999% chance you didn't because the standard .iso doesn't contain EFI

>> No.68630577

make sure the USB stick is formatted GPT
make sure you selected UEFI when putting the Windows installer on it
make sure your motherboard is UEFI and not BIOS
make sure MBR booting is disabled in your motherboard settings

Not rocket science.

Just F8 or F10 into the boot menu and you will have an obvious option to boot the disk UEFI, if you have some bullshit pirate auto activating iso with updates slip streamed in then they probably didn't make the disk bootable via UEFI.

Ah man, I figured it out /g/oys: windows 7 install iso is 32-bit and UEFI is 64-bit. FML

macs were using GPT well before windows, GPT is much older than 2012, or even 2006 when apple started using it, GPT was part of EFI, which was deprecated in 2005
