    Trying to install Win 7 on a Narrow Mini PC coming with Win 10 on board GPT disk, the system does not allow to convert to mbr:"Windows can not be installed on this disk. The selected disk contains an MBR partition table. Windows can only be installed on EFI systems on GPT disks."So i install Win 7 on gpt but when message * Windows is starting " stops i get the error: an unexpected error occured- error 0xc000098 or 0xc0000225-Winload.efi missing.I think Bios is restricted and limited to GPT. Bios options:
    Option 1. Windows Boot Manager
    Option 2. USB
    Option 3. Built-in EFI Shell
    The other option is "load optimized defaults ".
    Systeminfo:SSD 32 GB
    Bios AMI BT3016
    ‚ÄčIntel Atom x5-Z8300 CPU@1.44GHZ, 1441 MHZ, 4 log.ProcessorsRAM 4GB
    Can anyone confirm that the system has restrictions?
    Thank you.

    What architecture of win 7 are you trying to install? x86 or x64?

    Your text confuses me, can you please sort out the error message and your own text?
