The gpt canot hold a mbr and is other configured, maby there is a other way to format it.
You must recreate the drive to ntfs with a bootable dvd drive with a harddisk partition manager onit.
Just be carefull what you are doing when you convert your original ntfs partition to gpt.
Gpt is a more modern disk util and can handle larger disk then ntfs , and can hold a much larger volume then normal ntfs formated drives.
I did that a few days ago and I did had much troubles to get the drive back to ntfs.
I just wanna say windows 8.0 or 8.1 users be carefull what you are doing with those gpt converted disks, its a lot of work to get the ntfs partition back online again.
Always use gpt partition disk for separated disk not as a boot disk for windows with the mbr on it.

Yes and i have a strange kind of motherboard i canot dou any bios update so i,m stock with ntfs.Chris wrote:You can install windows on GPT, it just needs a few modifications and a UEFI supporting bios.
Indeed just like you said the bios must suport this new format for drives.
i dis set the bios on windows 7 , i can set the bios also on windows 8.0 or 8.1.
Never the less i did format the drive as ntfs with ofcourse the mbr on it.
ofcours mine drive is not larger then 1 tb.
With gpt you can format drives with 3 tb.
Its a bios from 2012.
But if you go back and want the drive formated as ntfs you must delete the whole drive and make a logical drive from it in ntfs format.
Format it again and install system on it.
