Z580 - Reverting back to Windows 7 ?

I have a Idea Pad Z580 laptop running on Windows 8.1 and want to change to Windows 7. This, I believe involves the UEF system which is running on GPT. This has to be changed to MBR. How does one do this? (legacy bios - MBR)

At the same time, I would like to install a new hard drive. This is an SSD. I am hoping that if I install a new SSD hard drive the computer will ask the question -  do I want GPT or MBR thus allowing me to install a fresh Windows 7 under MBR.

Many thanks

Re: Windows 7

Just a comment. You can have gpt disk and run Win 7 in UEFI mode.
