mbr2gpt on data disk

New Contributor

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to convert my data disk from having a MBR to GPT, but mbr2gpt tells me that it doesn't find any OS on the disk (which is right, obviously, since Windows is installed on another disk...).

Is there a chance to force the conversion without having an OS installed? Maybe with some undocumented switch or something?

So, for all of you facing the same problem: I got around the issue with gptgen (https://github.com/xorangekiller/gptgen). Seems like this is the better tool for converting MBR drives...
