  2. MBR2GPT

    Thanks for your feedback Andre.

    The link below contains a video I was using to try and convert my MBR to GPT on my system drive..

    MBR2GPT

    The video explains that the methods used in your suggestion will destroy data and that is why the new utility MBR2GPT is the recommended solution. Since this utility is new with the latest Fall Creators Update, it may need updating. I hope someone has more
    experience with it and can shed some light on why it fails for me.

    MBR2GPT not working


    I ran mbr2gpt from elevated command prompt:
    PHP Code: C:\WINDOWS\system32>mbr2gpt /allowfullos /validate /disk:0
    MBR2GPT: Attempting to validate disk 0
    MBR2GPT: Retrieving layout of disk
    MBR2GPT: Validating layout, disk sector size is: 512 bytes
    Cannot find OS partition(s) for disk 0

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>mbr2gpt /allowfullos /validate /disk:1
    MBR2GPT: Attempting to validate disk 1
    MBR2GPT: Retrieving layout of disk
    MBR2GPT: Validating layout, disk sector size is: 512 bytes
    Disk layout validation failed for disk 1

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
