If you’re going to install Windows on your computer or laptop, but you can’t select the disk that you want. And if you click ‘Show details’, you see this message “Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has MBR partition table. On EFI system, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks.” This means that you can’t install Windows in UEFI mode on a disk which has MBR partition table.
To fix this issue, there are 2 methods.
1. Convert partition table on the disk from MBR to GPT.
2. Switch to boot as legacy BIOS-compatibility instead of UEFI mode.
* Note: The solution below will delete any partition and data on the disk. If you have any important data on the disk, you have to move or backup to other disk first.
In this video, I will show only the first method which can also be divided into 2 methods as follows:
1. Delete all partitions on the disk and let Windows convert to GPT.
1.1 Delete all partitions on the disk that you want to install Windows by select a partition and click ‘Delete’.
1.2 Now the disk status should be ‘Unallocated space’, you can continue installing Windows on this disk. And Windows will format it to GPT.
2. Convert partition table to GPT using diskpart program.
2.1 On the page that you have to select a disk to install Windows, press Shift + F10 to open command prompt window.
2.2 Type ‘diskpart’ and press Enter.
2.3 Type ‘list disk’ and press Enter. This command displays all disks on the computer.
2.4 Select disk that you want. In this example, I will select the first disk (disk 0), so I type ‘select disk 0’. And press Enter.
2.5 Then, type ‘clean’ and press Enter to delete any information on the disk.
2.6 Type ‘convert gpt’ and press Enter. This command will convert the disk to GPT partition table.
2.7 Type ‘exit’ and press Enter.
2.8 Close the command prompt window.
2.9 Click ‘Refresh’ to update disk status.
2.10 Now you can select the disk to install Windows in UEFI mode.
