  • cannot restore full system image backup to hyper v vm

    Hello.iI have a problem restoring a system image to a new virtual machine.I boot from windows 2008 r2 dvd,i select repair and i follow the procedure.But the procedure interupts with an error message
    The system image restore failed.
    Windows cannot restore a system image to a computer that has different firmware.The system image was created on a computer using EFI and this computer is using BIOS.
    Any solution?
    Thanks

        HyperV supports UEFI Booting. You'll just need to work out how to set it up. I've got no idea sorry..
