VMware 6.7 EFI firmware versus BIOS firmware - conversions to PVS vDisk

Shane Paul


Can anyone confirm if a VMware 6.7 VM built with EFI firmware can PXe boot and be used with PVS version 7.15 LTSR CU4?  I’m trying to convert a VM to a PVS vDisk and it was built with the EFI firmware option. If I power down the VM and change EFI firmware to BIOS firmware so I can boot to BIOS to change the boot order, the VM fails to boot and the OS can’t be found. If I change the firmware back to EFI the VM boots fine again.


I think these VM’s will have to be rebuilt using BIOS firmware, but am looking for confirmation before I suggest this as a course of action.
