Windows had an installation problem on my HDD after a crash or something, and all the solutions i found on Google was to do a clean install windows after partitioning HDD. I didn't wanna lose 1 TB of files so used my old laptop HDD and installed Windows there and now my Desktop is running with a laptop HDD at the moment lol.
The Problem began after i hit restart accidentally twice and Automatic repair popped up and got stuck there leading to plenty more errors and missing files caused by the repair so i tried to re-install windows and everything went well until i format my System drive and couldn't continue to the 'Next" step to install windows due to GPT error.
i was able to install windows on laptop HDD only through MBR conversion only too.
-> The only answer i need now is if its possible to Convert a 'Local Disk: X' from GPT to MBR without affecting the whole HDD now that i can start up the computer.
i'm rekt pls halp.
