Hi, I am trying to install Windows 7 64-bit on my brand new Inspiron 3521 and for the life of me I cant!
Here is what I did:
Changed boot mode to Legacy mode, booted from DVD, setup loads, but cant install, cause disk is GPT
So, I read that I have to boot from UEFI to install Windows 7 in a GPT drive.
When I select UEFI and select boot device, there is only the option to boot from the HDD (Recovery Partition).
There is no DVD option at all!!
How can I install Windows 7 in a GPT drive if I cannot select the DVD Drive as a boot device????
