Hi,

On the Windows website it says these requirements.

System firmwareUEFI, Secure Boot capable

Will I be able to boot my SSD (WD Black SN850 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD) from Legacy to UEFI (Secure Boot), and if so how would it be done. My motherboard is a ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming (3604)?

Thankyou

W11 is not only requires SB and UEFI, it also needed TPM 2.0.

Now, check with the PC Health Check app if your PC can run W11.


Or, WhyNotWin11.

Thanks guys I needed to convert my SSD from MBR to GPT using this command.

Code:
mbr2gpt.exe /convert /allowfullOS

Then disabling CSM and selecting Windows Managed UEFI.

One thing I did get when converting to GPT was this error, is it much to worry about?

Code:
MBR2GPT: Failed to update ReAgent.xml, please try to manually disable and enable WinRE.
