    Unable to clone disk: disk contains mismatched GPT and MBR partition


    Windows 10 is installed on machine and I need to clone the entire disk with Clonezilla.

    However, it gives an error as This disk contains mismatched GPT and MBR partition.

    It also says that I have to destroy the GPT partition table to be able to continue. How can I make sure that Windows 10 uses MBR partition table?

    That does not make sense a drive is either mbr or gpt. Clonezilla is old garbage. Try cloning with Macrium Reflect Free.

    well that is an mbr installation. I would ignore that error, backup the three partitions as an image using Macrium Reflect Free snd restore them to new drive.
