Hi folks,

I dual boot Debian 10 with Windows 10 from MBR in Legacy mode on my 6
years old Dell M4800 workstation. The BIOS supports both Legacy and UEFI
modes. With upcoming Windows 11 I am compelled to switch to UEFI mode.


Dell Precision M4800 laptops have 4th generation Intel Core processors [1] and Windows 11 does not support them [2]. So, even if you succeed in converting your Windows 10 / Debian 10 dual boot from BIOS/MBR to UEFI/GPT, you will not be able to run Windows 11 on that computer.
