    the ssd cannot be converted


    The ssd I had in my laptop cannot be converted to gpt. I downloaded Macrium Reflect and it is greyed out. The disk management utility does not help at all. I need help. I have a picture of the disk in Macrium Reflect. Any assistance will be appreciated.

    Click on command prompt in Macrium Reflect in bottom left hand corner and type

    diskpart

    list disk

    select disk n (n is number of ssd - will most likely be 1)

    clean (be certain you do not choose hdd as drive is wiped completely)

    convert gpt

    exit

    exit

    Or you can use Partition Wizard

    You are trying to convert Disk 2 correct ?

    Strange, if you had it in a laptop it should already be GPT or MBR.
