I think the same, take a look a this wiki:

After reading part of the wiki [0] I suggest You: to compare if the uefi files
are in the correct places on both system.

I think you need a time to shutdown your server and clone it
with dd and a livecd and then add a VM with this raw image
and work with the booting stuffs: maybe reinstall the uefi things or
change it to BIOS boot.


p.s.: Please don't top posting.
