Installing Windows 10 on a GPT disk with legacy BIOS and GRUB2

In my first entry in this blog, when I set up the hard disk partitions it was ready to install Windows. However, since then I had not returned to deal with this issue and now is the time to take it up.

Since Windows 8, the Windows installer is able to install Windows on GPT partitioned disks, as long as the computer supports the UEFI mode.

In this post I intend to show a method to work around this limitation of Windows installer. I'll install Windows 10 on a computer with a traditional BIOS and the hard disk partitions with GPT style.
