How to make one partition of 4TB GPT partitioned HDD bootable

Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased a 4TB HDD recently and I want to make one of its partition bootable, so that I would be able to install windows directly from placing installation files in that partition and then boot from that partition to install windows. I tried with YUMI but it could not made it bootable. My laptop has UEFI, I have partitioned my 4TB HDD on my Windows 10 laptop so the partition are GPT and sector size is 4kb. There is no data in my HDD so I can experiment with my HDD without worrying about loss of data.

Previous discussion starting around here on reboot.pro (so that hopefully already provided info is available) :

According to the test:

the disk is 512 bytes logical sector.

If disk is 512 bytes logical sector, can't I make it bootable for installation, I have already told there are no data in the disk, I can format it with 4kb sector, would that solve my problem? And please guide me how can I make it 4kb disk? My objective is to have a bootable partition for installation and I can experiment with it.
