Lost my Command Prompts

2019-02-05, 23:42 PM

Trying to get past the BitLocker on my Granddaughters Ideapad 100s 11IBY.


Having tried several avenues to recover from the Locker, it was decided to start fresh with a re-install of Windows 10.


As many of the functions were limited due to the lack of access because of the C: drive being locked etc.


Entered CMD and cleaned the Disk '0' to re-install windows.


Since doing this, although have a ISO with Win10 mounted on a USB. It will boot through to the point where a message comes up:-


"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only beinstalled to GPT disks."


Have used Rufus to change the ISO to GPT from MBR, this does nothing.


I cannot access CMD to change the format of the disk '0' as there is nothing there to select from etc.


Any tips of how rectify this problem.
