How can I remove GPT partition in Windows10?

I have upgraded my PC from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. And now I want to do a clean install. But I failed to install over current installation due to it being a GPT Partition style boot. Some users told me that this problem can be fixed if I remove GPT partition and replaced it with MBR. Do you know how to remove GPT partition in Windows 10? Actually I completely have no idea about how to do it.

It cannot be deleted or reformatted, because this type of partition is locked down and all options in the normal GUI for Disk Management are grayed out. But don’t worry!
