I've just installed and updated Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a brand new Lenovo G580, Core i5, 4 GB RAM.
Then I tried to install following programs and failed:
Comodo Time Machine 2.8 - it said "COMODO Time Machine can not initialize operating system information."
CTM 2.9 - the same issue
Rollback Rx 9.1 - during installation in the window "Select partitions you would like to protect:" there is no partitions shown. And I can't go on the installation. Or when I make it in a slightly another way it says "The disk free space is too low to install this software" (actually the system partition is 100 GB)
Keriver 1-Click Restore Free: when activating the Recovery Console it says "The disk0 isn't with a DOS type partitions table!". Then I skipped the activation of the Recovery Console and started to make the first snapshot, it said "FlcSelectPartByLetter failed".
I want to install one of the aforementioned programs (preferably Rollback or CTM). That's why I want to Change the GPT disk to MBR. I tried do it using diskpart from the running Windows and then from the Windows Recovery Disk. And again the same: when I wrote in the command prompt "convert mbr" the DISKPART answered "Virtual Disk Service error: The specified disk is not convertible. CDROMs and DVDs are example of disks that are not convertible."
Then I tried BIBM trial. I've created and booted from the BIBM disk. Then pressed Edit-Partitions. It shows a picture:
EFI system partition_____________100 MiB______EFI System
Microsoft reserved partition______128 MiB______GPT Entry
Basic data partition__________374311 MiB______HPFS/NTFS
I tried to change every partition with "Change Disk Type" to EMBR and MBR and it replied: "Error. Your request is being ignored because EFI Systems required a GPT".
Could you advise what to do?
I attached some pictures of this hard disk to clarify the story.
