    look like you are running the command while Windows is running. You must boot the PC into Windows Recovery environment.
    To boot into the Recovery: Hold down SHIFT key->Start->Power->Restart then try the command again.

    NOTE: The command will also fail if your current Windows disk layout is not configured correctly.

    The error is the disk layout failed. We would need to see a screenshot of disk management:

    More info on mbr2gpt:
    MBR2GPT | Microsoft Docs

    It can be run from within Windows with the /allowFullOS option.

    Yeah usual reason is drive already has four primary partitions. It has to create an EFI partition so original drive can only have three. In general, if mbr drive has a separate system partition (as most do), then you can delete that first, then run mbr2gpt. I am pretty sure you can only do this when booting from an windows 10 installation drive, using mbr2gpt offline (using diskpart).

    Your computer is already booting in UEFI mode which means the drive is probably already in GPT format. What makes you think it isn't?

    What does diskpart, list disk show?

    According to the screenshot it's a 1TB hard drive.

    Can't be...maybe a 10GB. The unallocated states 7266.00 GB and C is 2047.05 GB...which is a grand total of 9313.05 GB.


    I can't read or see....not sure which. You're right 1TB.
