    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: sevenforums.com.
    Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
