    The selected disk is of GPT partition style

    I would like to ask the sentence: "The selected disk is of GPT partition style". I have encountered it when I tried to install a new operating system. Does this sentence mean to say my hard disk is GPT so I have to change it from another, probably MBR? But it seems I misunderstand the sentence so would you please explain it?

    Thank you.

    It's describing your disk's partition style, whatever that is. Beyond that, I have no idea. You might try a tech forum. I don't know what GPT and MBR mean.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
