    I Need To Change My MBR PC To GPT Based PC

    Hello All,
    In preparation of installing Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, I would like to change my old MBR based PC to a GPT based PC. What is the best way to accomplish this? I am already done converting all of my drives to GPT except my C: drive, do I change that before, during or after installing the new edition of Windows 10? My system is based on:

    Intel Haswell i5 4690
    Asus motherboard, Z-97 A
    Crucial 256 GB SSD

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It's been done before.
    Here's the link that I posted on how it's done.

    Thanks. That video was pretty intimidating, I just might wait and do it during installation like this.
