the link I gave tells you how to convert mbr to gpt. I'm not against USB I used to use it before win 10 as well. I just now have a disc laying around while my USB drives are repurposed for other things and having a USB with gpt on it would mess with boot up I'd imagine, just preference is all. I think you can mount an iso while in windows for the installation via win 10s virtual drive. Copy and paste it onto a drive and run the gpt as you would the bootsect from command prompt.And for an ever increasing number of systems, there is no DVD drive.
Mounting an ISO from within a running Windows install has nothing to do with booting from a properly constructed DVD or USB, and installing a clean OS.the link I gave tells you how to convert mbr to gpt.

I'll take that, but Microsoft troubleshooting guide does say something about converting mbr of a flash drive to gpt or use the uefi iso. Funny thing is the tool they say to use isnt "from" Microsoft Haha I'm getting off topic, I'll shut up till the person with the question gives us an update.So, after a bit of research, it seems you're not completely off your rocker and no, I did not read whatever was at the link you pointed to. The plain fact is, that if you manually create a USB installer, you may encounter the problem you describe with the installation media partition type being a problem, HOWEVER, that is not how media should be created ANYHOW so it's a moot point.
There is NO reason to not use the Windows media creation tool, for ALL installation media creation (Unless you are doing something exotic, and that is not what THIS discussion is about), in which case this problem does not exist. You will never encounter this problem with the partition type issue on the installer media if you use the Microsoft creation tool. So, you are right, but you are wrong.
Just so that we're all on the same track, a screencap of your Disk Management window, please.Wow, ok, I just read all that and understood none of it. I got into Disk Management and my SSD is there, but marked as unassigned/unutilized, I don't remember which.
Yes, the Microsoft media creation tool IS most certainly FROM Microsoft.
I'll try and get one asap, until then, I am stuck with a slow WD HDD for a boot drive. That's why.Been asking for the disk management screenshot since page 1, so far, nada.
"Access denied" to your image.Here's the DM screenshot, but I've fixed the issue and can now use the drive again. However, I cannot clone to it, or it goes back to Unallocated.
I would really like to utilize it for my boot drive, but I haven't got a clue how to make it work.
