    Sorry, don't have experience with GPT and EFI.

    This is a Linux forum, not a Windows forum. If you want detailed advice on how to reinstall Windows 7 on your PC, your best approach is to post in the Windows 7 forums:
    Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 17.3; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    And most UEFI are now Windows 8.

    Microsoft suggested partitions including reserved partition for gpt & UEFI:
    Older Windows info on gpt - 2008 updated 2011
    Windows technical info on gpt and GUIDs
    Order on drive is important:
