The question “What should we do to convert MBR disk to GPT in Server 2008?” becomes common during the process of using computer. We all know that GPT disk has more advantages than MBR disk. This makes lots of users choose to use GPT disk rather than MBR disk. Partitioning disk has been done by professional personnel before we buy computer. They may choose GPT partition sometimes. But if they choose MBR partition and users want to use GPT partition after buying computer, what should they do to deal with this problem? In view of this, we’d like to advise users to convert MBR to GPT to successfully solve the problem.
However, there will be another problem users may encounter if they want to convert MBR disk to GPT in Server 2008. The problem is that users may be confused about how to perform disk conversion based on data protection.
They may consider using Windows built-in Disk Management to convert MBR to GPT, because it’s economical and practical to convert MBR disk to GPT in Server 2008 with the help of this tool.
