After converting MBR disk to GPT, there will be no such limitations.
Nowadays, hardware prices are much cheaper, you can easily create very large storage with TBs disk and RAID controller. To use the virtual disk and partitions that is larger than 2TB, you must convert the disk from MBR to GPT, otherwise, the rest disk space will be wasted.
Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT4, Windows 2000, Windows 2003 32-bit, Windows XP 32-bit version does not support GPT partitions, so you cannot access the data until you convert them back to MBR disk.
While all Windows can boot from a MBR disk, you can only boot from a GPT disk if you have a operating system that supports GPT and your motherboard has a EFI BIOS and is enabled.
Okay, no matter you want to convert MBR to GPT disk or convert GPT to MBR, Partition Magic Server software is able to convert between MBR and GPT without losing data.
