    Hello Sumitdhiman, :)

    After looking at the steps there, you might consider just doing a clean install of Windows 10 with UEFI instead since those steps will wipe your drive anyways.

    If done correctly, I don't see any steps in that tutorial that would wipe the drive - since a third party application is used to convert from MBR to GPT.
    Step 13 is where you would delete all partitions to wipe the drive, and Windows Setup will automatically do everything else for the format.

    You would only need that app to convert if you were manually doing it boot like in that TechNet article instead of using Windows Setup with installation media.

    K. It's interesting that they showed their operating system partition intact after creating new partitions in front of it. Granted, that tutorial does rely upon the disk being set up exactly like theirs to begin with.

    I just looked at it more closely, and indeed the Windows drive should still be intact without data loss afterwards.

    Converting Windows BIOS installation to UEFI - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki


    However, if one mistake is made or one thing goes wrong, I don't think it would survive. You would definitely want to back up first.

    Personally, I always prefer a clean install for the best results.

    So, I'm trying to do this, but a little differently. What I want to do, is make one like the official USB drive from MS, that has both Home & Pro in both x86 and x64 varieties. I have a copy of the official USB flash drive already, but I want to update it to build 1511 or just create a new one from scratch (this would actually be preferable). Unfortunately, the MCT from MS only lets you do Home *OR* Pro. Does anyone know of a way to do this, yet? If there's already a guide for this, my apologies, and I would appreciate a link to it. Thanks.

    Hello Jito, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Be sure that you have downloaded MCT again from OPTION ONE. It has been updated for TH2.

    You can use OPTION ONE, select Windows 10 (this is for both Home and Pro) for the edition, and select Both for the architecture.

    Ah, maybe that's my problem. I must be using an older version. Thanks for the tip.

    Hi, I'm having a problem. I've followed step 6 and have done it twice. Whenever I try to boot to the USB it will loop back to the bios. I have CSM and Fastboot disabled.

    Hello ravenomega, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Step 6 in which option?

    For now, you might see if an option in the tutorial below may help to boot from the USB.
