I'm setting up a new PC for my Mum, which currently just has a 500GB HDD. I'm going to move her SSD across from her old PC in due course and use that as the boot drive but I need to make sure the new one is all set up and working before I do that. So I've partitioned the HDD with two 70GB partitions for Windows, so that I can restore a system image from her current PC to the second partition and once that's working OK I'll make an image from the HDD, move her SSD into the new PC and restore the image to that. So I need to install grub4dos so that I can easily boot between the various partitions whilst I'm setting things up.
This is the partition table for the HDD

and it seems to be incompatible with G4D as the MBR screen in BootIce looks like this

so I can't install G4D to the MBR. I tried installing it to the PBR of partition 0 (the ESP one) as shown here

and I put a copy of grldr on the D partition just in case it hadn't installed on the ESP partition but that didn't do anything and it just booted to Windows 10 normally.
So do I need to change the partitioning scheme to be able to use G4D and can I do that without wiping everything (not that there's really anything on there yet except Windows, so I guess I could just make a system image of the C: partition and restore that afterwards).
