    Installation of os

    When I am installing os I forget see the type of driver. I formatted C drive later I tried for installation its not going because it is in gpt format. I have so much of data in that.
    There is any possible situations to install os with out disturbing data.

    Do not do anything that writes to the drive. Did you quick-format "C drive" or did you do a full format? What was the format tool and what command did you use on what you have called "C Drive"?
