My pc had really had really bad problems lag,viruses,update fails and many more so I decided to reinstall windows. I formatted the disk then when I noticed that message windows cannot be installed on this disk.when I press details, it reads the selected disk has an MBR partition table on efi systems windows can only be installed to gpt disks. When I click on repair your computer it said that it's not available on this version of Windows PLEASE HELP ME!

How did you format the disk? You need the disk to be GPT not MBR.

With windows 10, during a clean install, it is better to delete all partitions, rather than formatting, to leave one unallocated space to install it to. If you have another PC then connect the drive via a caddy and then use Disk Management to convert back to GPT. Replace it then install Windows 10.
