Currently working on a computer here that needs another OS for dual booting yet the HDD needed to be set to GPT to do that. This led me to using the Partitian assistant. I checked that the motherboard supports EFI and then I set it to convert the primary HDD that the OS is installed on.
It's been like this for half an hour now with "1.Convert disk 3 to GPT" under pending operations. I don't see anything else that indicates the progress so far or anything that says it is even doing anything at all. How long should I expect this to take? The drive is 660gb used out of 1.8tb and it's a pretty fast computer. I expected to be nearly done with the OS installation by now if it weren't for the requirement for the disk to be GPT.
