But when there is option to choose drive to install. It says windows " Cannot Install on GPT partition". How can i dual boot windows 7 with win8 . Plz help me ..

I have tried disabling secure boot and going to legacy support but none helped. i dont want to format whole harddisk and convert to MBR. Is there any way to install windows7 on GPT partition???
