i've just bought Asus laptop and it has Freedos os, i tried to install windows 8 but when i choose Drive partition it says Windows Can't Be installed to this disk.The selected Disk has an MBR partition table.On Efi systems,windows can only be installed to GPT disk. It also says something about NTFS formatting. So, Has anyone got a solution? please help.
P.S.
There is only 2 Partitions, System which has 918 GBs on it, and the second with 18 GBs.

From windows installation, it formats second partition, but about first it says we can't format selected partition, and error0X8004242d. Is there another way i can format from freedos?

Guys, i solved this problem . i saw a great answer also on this forum.
at the screen where it ask you to choose which drive to install Windows on, press Shift+F10 and a DOS window should open

type: diskpart
type: list disk (you should see only Disk0)
type: sel disk 0
type: clean

close the DOS window

click on Refresh, select the disk that is listed, and click Next
