    Good evening. I downloaded win7 loader by dazz and i get at status: unsupported partition table. I followed some steps from here:

    From your BIOS select to boot the Windows DVD without UEFI, go to the repair options, select command prompt and then enter this:
    diskpart, list disk, select disk 0, clean, convert mbr, create partition primary, select partition 1, format fs=ntfs quick
    but at the end i get this when i try to install windows :(: Windows cannot be installed on this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, windows can only be installed to GPT disks

    can some1 help me?

    First, you should have posted this into the official support thread: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/24902-Windows-Loader-Support-and-chat

    If you get that error the DVD has been EFI-booted again by accident. You need to boot the DVD the legacy way (without using the UEFI bootloader). This either requires you to change a BIOS setting, or, in case you can get a boot drive selection menu by a hotkey, use the DVD boot entry without the EFI mark.

    The bios needs set to Legacy mode instead of UEFI / Secure boot will/should disable. Then boot to the dvd and install to the MBR drive.

    Search manual of your mainboard for "Boot Options" or similiar, that should give hints what to alter to boot in legacy mode instead of UEFI Secure Boot. To help further it would need info about your mainboard model in detail :D.
