Hello.

I'm using a z390 aorus ellite mb(updated) and a i-5 9600K

I wanted to use intel performance maximizer.

But I can't get to use it, it says:

"System requirements not met 

A GPT formatted bootable disk is required."

Any help with this one?

What version of W10 are you using?  1909?  2004?

Yes, a GPT partition is necessary.  Are you booting legacy?

Ok, your bios is set to LEGACY.  We need to get you to UEFI.  We would also like to have you update your windows 10 to 1909 or 2004.

 

But first, UEFI boot.  To do this without a  clean install, you need to run MBR2GPT.  Here is a link on how to do this. 

https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/81502-convert-windows-10-legacy-bios-uefi-without-data-loss.html

Once you do this, and reboot, you must immediately enter your bios and change the boot mode from LEGACY to UEFI.  Once you have done that, you can boot to the OS, and you will now be a UEFI boot, with a GPT disk rather than an MBR disk.

I keep getting this error

"ERROR: MBR2GPT can only be used from the Windows Preinstallation Environment. Use /allowFullOS to override."

Now I get this

C:\WINDOWS\system32>mbr2gpt.exe /disk:4 /convert /allowFullOS

MBR2GPT will now attempt to convert disk 4.
If conversion is successful the disk can only be booted in GPT mode.
These changes cannot be undone!

MBR2GPT: Attempting to convert disk 4
MBR2GPT: Retrieving layout of disk
MBR2GPT: Validating layout, disk sector size is: 512 bytes
Disk layout validation failed for disk 4
MBR2GPT: Conversion failed

C:\WINDOWS\system32>
