Learn Conversion Into GUID Partition Table: Convert MBR To Gpt Boot Disk

Hi. The benefit of GPT is that it has more than four partitions on each disk. Also, it is used for disks with more than 2 TB. The minimum requirements for the conversion are that the disk should not contain partitions already, and you should have the admin credentials.

To convert MBR to gpt boot disk, the steps are as given below-

• Using command line

1) The data that needs to be converted into the GPT disk should first be backed up from the MBR disk

2) Open command prompt menu by right-clicking on the icon and select the option run as administrator

3) Type disk part in the command prompt.

4) If there are no partitions present on the disk, then type “convert gpt” in the command prompt.

• Using Windows interface

1) The data that needs to be converted into the GPT disk should first be backed up from the MBR disk

2) If the disk has some partitions present, then select delete partition by right-clicking on the volume of the disk

3) If there are no partitions present then, right-click on the disk that needs to be converted and among the options provided, select Convert to GPT disk

Hope we helped.
