How To Convert MBR To GPT During Windows Installation and NTFS Hard Format

Posted on Apr 17 2018 - 12:05am by Techy Hints

Performing operations seen in this video will wipe your hard drive. Backup data first, if possible. If there is anything on the device, I am not responsible for any data loss.

Master boot record (MBR) disks use the standard BIOS partition table. GUID partition table (GPT) disks use unified extensible firmware interface (UEFI). One advantage of GPT disks is that you can have more than four partitions on each disk. GPT is also required for disks larger than 2 terabytes.

You can change a disk from MBR to GPT partition style as long as the disk does not contain any partitions or volumes.

You cannot use the GPT partition style on removable media, or on cluster disks that are connected to shared SCSI or Fibre Channel buses that are used by the Cluster service.
