    @axe0 @TV2 well thought before I wiped I would try a convert to GPT.... And it worked, I'm up and running with no issues as of right now, if it happens again I will just do a clean slate.

    Thank you all for the help, in the process of making a BU of all my stuff, just to do a clean slate. Question, since I am backing up the entire C: drive instead of picking out all my stuff, could I use that external drive to "find" all my drivers again?
    You're welcome. As Axe0 suggests, it's best to download the correct ones from the OEM website and install.

    Well I'll be!
    That is really good to know. I learned something today. If I see a setup like that again I will be able to give a better answer!

    Now the real mystery is how it got converted to MBR in the first place. That is still weird.

    I have no idea! It will probably remain a mystery lol.

    Could you show us your partitioning so we can see what the conversion has done?

    Except for a missing recovery partition it looks good :)
    A recovery partition is at least a few 100 MB large, it is probably added after you install the Creators Update from the unallocated space.
