I am attempting to install Arch linux and dual boot it with windows. As I am running a modern UEFI system, I have put my SSD (see Specs below) in GPT format (losing my original windows installation in the process) where I plan on installing the UEFI boot loader, Windows, and Arch. At the moment I'm trying to reinstall Windows 7 (Professional x64), so I can do a UEFI boot. When I use Rufus to create a bootable GPT USB drive, I get the boot error 0xc0000225. When I try to do it manually with these (http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...e-windows.html) instructions, my computer does not recognize my flash drive as bootable (it gives the insert proper boot media error). I am using this (http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59186.iso) for the ISO, I also have an old installation disc. Booting the ISO without modification in Legacy BIOS works just fine, but I have no way to install windows to a GPT drive while booting in Legacy BIOS (Windows states it cannot be installed to a GPT drive, probably because it detects the system is running legacy bios instead of UEFI). How can I install Windows 7 onto GPT?
