I can start the install of Windows 7 on a new hard drive up to the point where it says it can't install windows on the GPT partition. If I move it forward, it looks for a driver but can't find the right one. I have the Resource CD from Dell, but it doesn't find the driver on the cd. This is a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. I can't format it to NTFS because I can't get to a place where this is possible. Without the Windows install disk, the hard drive only comes up to a blinking cursor in the top left corner.

Any ideas?
