    Thanks for everyone's input, and especially to Cereberus and Kbird for their solutions.
    I will report back once I have performed the conversion.

    Thanks for that.
    I was going to use GPTgen initially, however the Macrium technique seemed less complicated.. Happy to get everyone's opinions.

    update


    I have successfully converted my BIOS disk to UEFI using Macrium without losing any data!!! I am very pleased about this. I do have some questions:
    1.Why are my partitions still marked as NTFS, while my system partition is marked EFI?
    2.My boot time is now much slower than before. The image I restored was from immediately before the conversion. Is there some tweaking I need to do to this GPT?
    thanks

    That is not a standard GPT disk structure , I think you reimaged the WHOLE DRIVE , not just C:\ after the Conversion

    Install Minitool Partition Wizard 9 Free and lets see what it sees ....... it will show the hidden MSR partition too if you are GPT.

    I just noticed that changing to UEFI turned on "enable fast boot" where previously I had it turned off. I tried disabling it, and I believe the boot was a little faster.

    been a while, since we started..... was it a Windows 8 computer previously ? it is showing a 128mb MSR (Other) Partition which was the Standard Win.8/8.1 size. So I think you Converted the Disk and then reimaged the Whole Drive instead of just C: partition from the Old Backup image. And in your Case the E: and F: drives too , ie your Data Partitions.

    Windows 10 normally has

    450mb Recovery
    100mb EFI (System)
    16mb MSR (Other)
    XXX GB C:\ Drive

    you also would have
    110.10 GB E:
    114.07 GB F:

    BTW you CDRom does not need to be D:\ I usually make mine Z:\ so my HDDs are c.d.e.f.g etc , you can change the letter in MTPW or Disk management , however if you change letter it could effect programs that start off CD though there are not many of those now.....
    If you have program installed on E; and F: then they would need reinstalling if you change those Drive letters to D: and E: but if they are just Data storage (Pic/Docs etc) then it won't matter .

    ***Edit ....I thought you wanted a Clean Win10 Install of AU so why did you restore from a Backup?

    yes, I did want a clean boot, but also wanted to keep my data and programs. And so, I installed the anniversary update first, imaged the drive with Macrium, converted to uefi, then rewrote the drive with the image.
