I convert about 17 Debian machines with Debian 8 with little or no problem.
(I understand that you need Debian 9 but that is my experience).

I'm think your problem is about the virtual hardware versión of

I have all my machines with Virtual Hardware version: 11

Read this links, may be help you:

[1] https://communities.vmware.com/thread/519642

Here [2] say that

"(...) EFI firmware is supported from hardware version 11 and above. (...)"
