    Ok
    When you click on partition, select the single partition.
    Then you need to go to options and select GUID partition scheme*

    Then try applying it and see if it works.

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
