For me, it was possible to avoid the error “the selected disk has an MBR partition table on EFI partition, windows can only be installed to GPT disk” in the following way: Back to OSX, I used “Disk Utility” to remove the windows partition leaving its space FREE (i.e.: I left only the OSX partition and removed totally the windows partition previously created with bootcamp). Back to the windows installation, the system asks to install windows in the free space and allows to finish the installation. It worked in my 2011 iMac with Yosemite installed and now also with windows 8.1 Pro.

  3. It’s work but after instal windows it will restart automaticaly and you can acces windows just in safe mode

  4. I had the same error, I fixed that making the windows partition from Bootcamp app not from Disk Utility!! (didn't work for me), I didn't need to install from EFI boot, I installed it from Window option.
    I installed it from a Windows 7 disk (not a .iso), 64bits, OSX El Capitan.
    Good luck!

  5. did this and i still get the error saying “the selected fish has an MBR part table, windows can only be installed on GPT disks.” any ideas?

  6. IT DID NOT WORK FOR ME ….HOWEVER TO FIX IT: Simply format the bootcamp partition as "Mac OS journaled" on Mac Disk Utility (instead of EXFAT as the video) …then try to install again (you may have to delete the bootcamp partition thru win install one final time …but then the error goes away after…

  7. Oh my God . This fixed my Dell Inspiron 15 that I've been trying to fix for the last year and a half. It was defective, and I'd been stuck in a bootloop, among other things. I was finally at the last hurdle, I'd mistakenly deleted a partition, no longer had any flash points to load from, and I thought all was lost. Dude, thx so much for sharing this with us. I'm beyond euphoric right now !
