All this error needs you to do is delete all the partitions on the hdd and click next, windows 10 will create 4 partitions and continue the install.
See step 13 here: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-windows-10-clean-install.html
MBR = Master Boot Record. The format used on all Windows hdd up to Windows 7. MBR drives can only have 4 partitions max and max size of 2 TB
GPT = GUID Partition Table. This is the format used by Windows 8 & 10. GPT drives can have up to 128 partitions and max size is (silly) 18.8 million TB
GPT format was designed to fix MBR limitations.
MBR drives match Legacy systems, basically any PC made before 2009 uses Legacy
GPT drives match EFI systems, which is any PC made since 2009.
EFI = Extensible Firmware Interface, but you don't need to know that
