2. Use following command: diskpart and then list disk
3. If there is no * in the GPT column, it indicates the disk is MBR partition style

For a error free conversion from Windows-10 into Windows-11 you need:

Verify before you go!
– a MOBO that can handle a Boot mode selection from [LEGACY+UEFI] ->UEFI

– a MOBO with TPM2.0 device selection
-a MOBO that can enable Secure Boot Support

Secure Boot Support will only become active AFTER a conversion from the Disk Partition Type MBR into GPT.
