Ok, so my computer was running completely fine (with the exception of random freezes) for the past month or so. So I ran driver cleaner and all that and reinstalled a new graphics driver. While the computer was shut down, I installed a PCI wifi adapter card and removed an old dead hard drive. After booting, windows would not load, despite the correct boot settings still intact in BIOS. I keep getting this message, despite the fact that seconds before everything worked fine - 'reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key'.
So I thought I would just reformat a drive and reinstall windows, which is the HD I previously installed the exact same copy of windows 7 on. Only now, every HD and every partition I can't install windows to. I get the message 'the selected disk has an MBR partition table, on EFI systems Windows can only be installed on GPT disks.
The only thing I can think of is I pulled some of the SATA cables a bit too hard when removing the HD? Don't know wth. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Specs:
