Upgraded MBR to GUI--effortlessly

Post by bobbo_the_Pragmatist » Wed Jan 27, 2016 9:44 pm

Been messing with this for a year or more as I moved to Hard Drives above 2 TB AND wanted to install various Win10 trial programs. For various reasons (too cheap to buy another usb stick) I could only install Windows 10 on MBR and then I discovered that MBR limited the entire hard drive to just 2 TB rather than a partition within the hard drive. What to do?

Ultimately did find registry edits to change mbr to gui, but while I have regedited...I like to shy away from that.

Today.......I found that MiniTool Partition Wizard Professional 9.1 changed the hard drive with one click and did not destroy any of the files ((that were backed up anyway)). I like computers. got a problem? Wait a year or more, and it will be fixed or some product will come out to fix it. I'm sure other partition managers will do this operation too, but I didn't find them a year ago.

I love success. Ceiling fan.......still broken. All in good time.
