gpt file format

I was trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 in my system and windows7 along side. I first installed ubuntu and then tried to install windows7. Now my Hard disk is in GPT format and I can't now install windows . Is there any way for me to revert it back to MBR.

And this is why you install windows first before linux

Did windows delete your linux partitions? If so, then sorry to tell you, but you wil have to re-install Ubuntu. Now if it didn't, then you can pop in your Ubuntu disc, enter into recovery mode, and reinstall grub.
