Your installation tool was built (or contains) MBR which is an older type of Windows partitioning.  GPT is newer

 

How did you create the the windows install?  If you used RUFUS to create a USB install you need to select GPT not MBR

 

Description of each

https://www.minitool.com/partition-disk/mbr-vs-gpt-guide.html

 

You need GPT if your disk is greater than 2TB.  If you have 2TB or less then delete the GPT partition and reformat as MBR and continue with your installation.

 

Did you burn a DVD ISO of window 10?  

If you created a USB make sure it was configure for gpt.

 

You can obtain an original OS release for your system from here
