Convert MBR partition to GPT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear,

    I need to extend a non system partition over 2Tb on Server 2008 R2, sadly the disk was created long time ago as MBR.
    As it's running on VMware, would it be possible to shutdown the concerned server, attach the disk to a Windows 10 and use the MBR2GPT tool?

    I'm a bit concerned by those 2 statements:

    - You cannot use the tool to convert non-system disks from MBR to GPT
    - Make sure that your device supports UEFI before attempting to convert the disk.

    Thanks!

    P.
