    I will swap with you. I have a 1TB HDD. That will work on MBR. I will convert from GPT first.:eek:

    The drive being GPT instead of MBR does not affect activation tools nor should it force you into a UEFI install. Not sure what the issue is? Daz, MS Toolkit or KMSPico should all work.

    Ok, apologies, I realize now that yes, if you have a GPT disk, you have to use UEFI setup otherwise it won't boot.
    Which loader did you use? Did you try different ones?
    Have you tried a KMS tool instead?

    Loaders may have issues; KMS should work. Reason being (I'd think) is that loaders moreso mimic what an OEM uses, and OEM's are not going to use GPT discs because they're not going to have >2TB capacity on the OS drive and probably therefore the OS disc is an MBR despite new OEM bioses being UEFI compatible.

    You may have to use a KMS tool instead. KMSPico should work fine.

    Ultimate will not work with kms. Windows loader will not work with gpt boot drives. Install Professional or Enterprise to use a kms activator with gpt drive.

    Yes, true answer to question, so much false information posted when there is dedicated section for Daz loader that could have explained all o_O

    Why don't you mod your bios with Slic 2.1 & not bother with loaders/kms.
    Do a search for your motherboard & I'm sure there's a modded 1 already done.
    If not, try Andy's Phoenix Tool to insert the slic or ask the guys to mod it if your not up to it...

    Anyway the OP should keep in mind that the limit is just for bootable drives.

    A 4TB drive can be used as data drive and can be seen by anything newer than XP64, if formatted with GUID scheme.

    And even XP32 is able to see those partitions using third party drivers.

    So aside the valid messages above, my suggestin is to not use a 4TB HDD as OS drive, there are a number of reasons that made this kind of setup not so wise.

    Just get an SSD as boot drive. Even a super cheap 32gb can be more than enough
