How to Change from MBR to GPT or Vice-Versa using CMD ?

Master Boot Record (MBR) disks use the standard BIOS partition table. GUID Partition Table (GPT) disks use Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). One advantage of GPT disks is that you can have more than four partitions on each disk. GPT is also required for disks larger than two terabytes (TB).

You can change a disk from MBR to GPT partition style as long as the disk contains no partitions or volumes.

Converting using the Windows interface

  1. Back up or move the data on the basic MBR disk you want to convert into a GPT disk.
  2. If the disk contains any partitions or volumes, right-click each and then click Delete Partition or Delete Volume.
  3. Right-click the MBR disk that you want to change into a GPT disk, and then click Convert to GPT Disk.

Converting using a command line

The Command Prompt can be accessed by pressing Shift+F10 during Windows Setup. Use the following steps to convert an empty MBR disk to a GPT disk. There's also a MBR2GPT.EXE tool that you can use, but it's a little complicated - see Convert MBR partition to GPT for more details.

  1. Back up or move the data on the basic MBR disk you want to convert into a GPT disk.
  2. Open an elevated command prompt by right-clicking Command Prompt and then choosing Run as Administrator.
  3. Type diskpart. If the disk does not contain any partitions or volumes, skip to step 6.
  4. At the DISKPART prompt, type list disk. Note the disk number you want to convert.
  5. At the DISKPART prompt, type select disk <disknumber>.
  6. At the DISKPART prompt, type clean.
  7. At the DISKPART prompt, type convert gpt.
