Windows 8.1 pro x64 mdr error.

Post by alpha02 on Wed 27 Aug 2014, 16:25

hello...

thanks for your upload...

i am having some trouble with the windows 8.1 pro x64 that you have uploaded at kickass.to.
when i try to install it from bootable usb its says that you have to reformat your entire disk to gpt. If i do that i will lose all of my data...

If you know how to convert disk format for mbr to gpt without data loss then tell me that method. (i have only one hard disk with 5 partitions on it. i want to install windows 8.1 to my c drive and i don't want to lose my data of more then 250 GB in other partitions).

or is there any way to install it on mbr partitioned hard drive... (i am currently running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit on my system)

If you can help me on this i will be very thankful to you...

Hello,


I'm not sure if that's what you want to know, but if you start the installation of Windows 8, under "Custom installation" (?), you should get an option to choose on which partition you want to install Windows 8. So if you then choose the C: partition, the other partitions shouldn't be affected by that. 

The next possibility would be that you simply try and back up all your important data, on an external hard-drive for example. If that is possible for you though. Then you can format your entire hard-drive as you wish.

If that's not what you wanted to hear, please wait for a reply from the Admin. Smile
