    Does that work?
    No. You would be trying to convert a system drive to GPT and most programs (including AEOMI, I believe) won't let you convert a system drive to GPT. You have to do the conversion when booted from another drive other than the one you want to convert.

    See How to Convert GPT to MBR or Convert MBR to GPT without Losing Data?
    Scroll down to Muh Wahyudgi's post.
    Who knows how he lost his data. I doubt it was only from converting from MBR to GPT. It's always a good idea to have a backup of data before doing anything major to the drive it is on.

    I used Partition Wizard to convert all my data drives from MBR to GPT and had no issues.
