Install Windows 10 to MBR disk

by BELZIEU / May 29, 2015 4:31 AM PDT

Hi, I have 2 partitions on my main HDD - one (200gb) for Os and next one (800gb) for files (photos, videos...). I cant transform my disk to GPT, because I have about 500gb files on disk and can't store it somewhere. Is possible to install it?
Btw. I have 80gb SSD used as cache, too, but can't install it here, because this disl is showing like just 10gb on disk select step.

Windows 10 is not out.

The version that is out is for testing. Why do you need a test OS?

a Beta Testing OS on your working computer ? Are you trying to dual boot ?
What happens when the Win 10 Beta fails due to updates and now the whole computer is rendered useless?
(this happened to me on a spare computer)

Don't do this on an everyday working computer

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
