    Is It Possible To Convert GPT to MBR Than Legacy Boot Windows


    First off, I apologize if this may be posted int the wrong section, I could not find another section that would suit this content. And also, I apologize if this sounds stupid, I don't like staring at the Acer logo when I turn on the computer, and cannot find a way to turn it off in the BIOS.

    Anyways, my computer can legacy boot, and I was wondering if I could convert my GPT drive to MBR than simply Legacy boot off of the same drive? Is this easy to do, or is it hard? Thanks in advance for your time

    The easiest way to do that involves two hard drives. Do you have a second hard drive large enough to contain the contents of the in-use hard drive?

    Yes I would need a SATA to HDD converter, but I found another thread on this forum that had me download HackBGRT and I changed the logo, so I don't need to convert anymore, thanks for your help tho

    Two days ago I converted a MBR to GBT with the paid version of MiniTools Partition Wizard. There is also a option to go from GPT to MBR. Don't forget to make a back up before trying. I don't know if the free version can do it. MiniTool Partition Wizard | Best partition magic alternative for Windows PC and Server

    It`s very simple to do, but risky.

    You`re still gonna see the logo, so why are you attempting this ?

    There is an option to turn it off in the Bios, you are just not finding it. It should be under boot options.

    It should say "Boot Logo display" enable/disable, if not look for a boot logo or diagnostic screen timeout setting and set it to 1 second, if possible.
