I want to clone a MBR disk to GPT format.  AOMEI AOMEI Software says they can do it.  Has anyone done this and made it work? Did you run into any problems?  What software did you use?

My procedure will be to clone the ssd hard drive running Win7 on a Dell Optiplex 3010 mini-tower. I'll then take the clone and update that to Windows 10 on the Optiplex.  Then I'll clone that to another ssd in GPT format, change the bios parameters and see if I can run that.
