Convert to MBR - jmsatl - 08-02-2015

Hi,

I am trying to install Windows on a 128gb flash drive on a uefi pc that has a tiny 32gb hard drive.

The issue is that I format to GPT using EASEUS, but when I start the WinToUSB program (physical to usb) it converts it to mbr. Why.? The current OS drive is GPT.


Thanks,

Thanks,

Which version of Windows are you using?
Is there a FAT32 partition on the USB flash drive after WinToUSB formating the drive? If it is true, then this drive can boot in UEFI mode and BIOS mode, otherwise it can only boot in BIOS mode.
