Re: P2V Debian 9 with VMware Converter




I've investigated a bit more and it actually has something to with EFI rather than Debian version.


This Debian 9 clones fine:

Model: IBM ServeRAID M5014 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 998GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    File system  Name  Flags
 1      1049kB  2097kB  1049kB                     bios_grub
 2      2097kB  271MB   268MB   fat32              boot, esp
 3      271MB   998GB   998GB                      lvm


And this one gives the error:

Model: DELL PERC H730P Mini (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 4197GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    File system  Name  Flags
 1      1049kB  511MB   510MB   fat16        uefi  boot, esp
 2      511MB   767MB   256MB   ext3         boot
 3      767MB   4197GB  4196GB               lvm   lvm


All my existing VMs across all ESXi hosts are configured with BIOS boot.
