Just noticed a neat feature in Hasleo where you can restore an mbr legacy bios installation automatically to uefi gpt mode as per tutorial below.

I have yet to test it but even though you can do it with Macrium Reflect, it is not as slick as this seems to be.



EDIT - this option is limited - it restores image as gpt rather than MBR but does not rebuild bcd so will not boot. I tried to follow up with Macrium "Fix Windows Boot Problems" but that failed as Reflect thinks the installation is still mbr athough drive is now gpt.

Apart from maybe converting a data drive to gpt, this option has no use. It is not a shortcut to using mbr2gpt.
