Default Installing windows 7 from previously running osx leapard - 10-18-2009, 07:41 AM

I go through the install process of windows 7 beta but I get stuck when it asks me to choose the destination drive. My ssd doesn't qualify because its formated in GPT, which must be the format used by the previous os, osx leopard?

delete all partitions in windows 7 install and then format a new partition on the unallocated space and then it should work.
