In this example, there is one 40 GB disk with 0 index (Disk 0) in the system. As you can see, this
disk has a standard MBR partition table (GPT column is empty)
4. Convert the partition table of Disk 0 from MBR into GPT using the command
gptgen.exew\\.\\physicaldrive0

. While running the command, there appears a warning that the developers do not guarantee that
you are able to boot from this partition when the conversion to GPT is over.

Note. 0 at the end of the physicaldrive shows that disk 0 should be converted.

gptgen.exe: Partition table converter v1.1


Boot: 1, Type: 07, Start: sector 2048, Length: 204860 sectors
Boot: 0, Type: 07, Start: sector 206858, Length: 83685636 sectors
WARNING: Boot partition(s) found. This tool cannot guarantee that
such partitions will remain bootable after conversion.
Do you want to continue? [Y/N] y
Writing primary GPT and protective MBR to LBA address 0
Writing secondary GPT to LBA address 83786657
Success!

Thus, the conversion of partition table into GPT has been successful!

Transfer of Windows Boot Manager to the USB Flash Drive


Restart the computer and make sure that the system doesnt boot from the hard disk. Excellent! Connect
a USB flash drive or an SD card. Boot from the installation CD/USB disk with Windows (Windows 7 in our
case), and press Shift+F10 on the Windows installation screen for opening the console:
Run the command:
diskpart

Display the list of the disks in the system:


listdisk

. Now there are two disks in the system: Disk 0 is a 40 GB hard disk with the OS installed (* the
column gpt shows that this disk contains this type of partition table) and Disk 1 is a 1 GB USB flash
drive.

Lets dwell on the disks and their letters. Select a hard disk:
selectdisk0

and display the list of volumes on it:


listvolume

According to the size of volumes, you can see that the system is installed on the Volume 2, which has
letter D assigned (it can differ from the letter of the system disk, displayed by Windows itself)
Create the necessary partitions on the USB flash drive:
selectdisk1

select a USB flash drive


clean

clear disk contents


createpartitionprimarysize=1000

create a main partition on the USB flash drive, 1 GB in our case


format

format it
selectpartition1

select the first partition on the USB flash drive


active

mark it as active
listvolume

display the list of volumes again. In this example, you can see that the volume that we have created
is No. 3
selectvolume3

select it
assignletter=G
