Convert MBR to GPT Windows 10 Directly

How to convert mbr to gpt and vice versa windows 10 directly, easily and quickly? We made this tutorial, because some events cannot install Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 11 or the latest version of Windows related to the Hard disk partition table.

What are the Problems When Installing Windows on MBR and GPT Partition Table?

 
The following is the message and display of the Windows install error that occurs and how to solve it.
 
The first problem is Windows Install Error
 
Error Install on Windows 8,10,11 and above caused by MBR Partition Table. Some of The error message notification that appears is as follows:
 
"Windows cannot be installed to the disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI system, Windows can only be installed to GPT disk."
 
Windows cannot be installed to the disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI system, Windows can only be installed to GPT disk
 
What happened and how to solve it?
 
From the notification picture above, it indicates that your hard disk is currently using the MBR partition table. And to be able to install Windows 8, 10, 11 or the latest version, you must use the GPTpartition table.
 
To solve the problem above, then you have to change the disk partition table from MBR to GPT partition table.
 
Second Windows install error problem
 
Error Install on Windows 7 and later versions caused by GPT Partition Table. The error message notification that appears is as follows:
 
"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style"
 
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style
 
In the above description, the opposite condition is that you install Windows 7 on the GPT partition table, Windows cannot be installed on the GPT Partition table.
 
So to be able to install Windows 7 then you have to change from GPT partition table to MBR Partition Table. The following is a notification that appears when installing Windows 7 on the MBR partition table.
 
So, those are some of the problems that occur when you install Windows on a hard drive that has MBR or GPT partition table formats. Both partition tables have their own strengths and weaknesses.
 

How to Convert MBR to GPT Windows 10 and vice versa Directly

 
In the following, Misnia will share a tutorial on how to convert MBR to GPT directly when the installation process fails as in the first notification of the problem above.
 
However, I need to remind you that when you convert MBR to GPT or vice versa directly during the installation process, the risk is that all table partitions, data will be deleted.
 
If you don't want all data, all table partitions to be deleted because of converting MBR to GPT, then you can use hard disk partition utility software from third parties such as EaseUS Partition Master, Paragon Partition Manager, AOMEI Partition Assistant, MiniTool Partition Wizard, Macrorit Disk Partition Expert, Active@ Partition Manager, GParted and more.
 

How to change the type of hard disk partition table when installing windows

 
As we have said, changing the hard disk partition during the installation process, the hard disk will be completely empty, all data is lost including the partition.
 
Therefore, before converting MBR to GPT Partition table directly during installation, you should first backup all data and files on the hard disk.
 
Step by step to change MBR to GPT Partition with Command Prompt
 
Straight to the main discussion, this time we will explain in detail the tutorial how to convert MBR to GPT Windows 10 directly during WIndows installation.
 
First stage, go to windows installation. In this example we demonstrate it on a Windows 10 installation.
 
Enter the windows 10 installation window. Then select Next. 
 
windows 10 installation
 
Then it will go to the Installation page for the next process. Click Install now.
 
install windows 10
 
Next will enter the third stage of the installation process. Well in this third process. You have to open a CMD command or command prompt. To open the command prompt, then you only need to press the SHIFT + F 10 key. Then the Administrator command prompt will appear.
 
the next step, to convert MBR to GPT do the steps below:
  • In CMD Type DISKPART (to run disk management command via Command prompt then press ENTER
  • Next type list disk and press enter (list disk command serves to display a list of partitions on the hard disk). Contains information about the partition status and size and type of partition table used. Press enter
  • Select the Hard disk partition that you want to change the partition type to. The trick, type again select disk 0 then press enter (select disk 0)
  • Type clean then press enter again
  • Type convert gpt if you want to change the hard drive to GPT. Type convert mbr if you want to convert to MBR

 convert gpt to mbr windows
 
6 It worked. Then you can close the command prompt and continue to install windows 7 / 8 / 10.
 
gpt partition style
 
The difference between converting MBR to GBT and conversely converting GPT to MBR is only at the convert gpt command and convert MBR.
 
The difference is only in the fifth step. If you want to change to GPT type convert gpt. Conversely, if you want to change to MBR type convert mbr.
 
Conclusion :
 
If your Laptop or Desktop PC uses Windows 7, then you want to upgrade to Windows 8, 10, 11 and above (especially for 64 bit), then you have to use the GPT partition table hard drive scheme by converting MBR to GPT.
 
Conversely, if you use Windows 8, 10, 11 and versions of Windows above (64 bit) and want to downgrade to Windows 7, then you have to convert the hard drive you are using from GPT to MBR partition table.
 
So that's the Convert MBR To GPT Windows 10 tutorial directly when the Windows 10 installation process is running.
