Hi All,

I have a new dell pc optiplex 5040 and I wanted to use UEFI instead of legacy boot thus need to convert, I used cmd to convert but I am getting virtual disk service error the operation is not allowed on a disk that contains page file volume, I had try to unselect Automatically manage paging file size for all drivers paging size for each drive, but still couldn't work. I would like to ask if anyone know what caused virtual disk service error the operation is not allowed on a disk that contains page file volume. I have only one partition and currently window 7 and wanted to upgarde to win 10 uefi.

Thanks
