DB85FL - Need help installing win 8 pro on SSD with GPT

I can't seem to install Win 8 pro on my SSD when formated for GPT. Installation says it can't install to the GPT formatted SSD.

Is there a straight forward article on doing this. I've read a dozen posts on doing it and none have worked for me yet.

Please check on BIOS if the UEFI is enable. I will also recommend you to keep "Legacy boot" enable "

Remember that GTP is only supported for 64 bit editions of Windows 8 or 7.

You may want to post this issue on Microsoft communities for additional assistance.
