Cannot convert to GPT - 64 bit OS needed and cannot upgrade to 64 bit OS - GPT partition needed.

I am currently running an Intel i3 64 bit capable processor but I need GPT partition type instead of an MBR one to install my 64 bit Windows 8. But the conversion requires that I have a 64 bit processor. How do I do this without losing my data ? 


  • Yes,you can use PA to convert your MBR to GPT.

    But ,there are some advice for you before the convertion.

    1,You need to do defragment.

    2,Check your disk if it has bad sector.

    3,We advice you can do the disk backup in order to that the action fails for some unknown reason.

    Hope this is useful for you.

    Have a nice day :)
