    Default Win 7 & Leopard - MBR & GUID/GPT Issue..

    I am wondering what you would suggest for my problem.

    If I have a disk with MBR partition table. If I back up the current windows 7
    OS on there with Todo sector by sector this will be saved.

    Then If I change the disk from MBR to GUID/GPT, would it be true that I would
    not be able to restore the windows 7 above sector by sector back to the
    converted disk. (Since it was backed up under MBR)?

    What way would I be able to backup the original win 7 MBR... and be able to
    restore it to the new GUID/GPT Disk?

    Thanks.

    Default

    Just a note, I contacted EASEUS partition & backup people about this and they do not support restoring a MBR backup to a GPT partition and don't know of anyone who does.

    This would be a great piece of conversion software to engineer. Now that hackintosh is out this situation has become relevent. Please post here if anyone knows of an company who is working on this idea, and if it can be done. Thanks.
