restoring /legacy/MBR based backup to UEFI/GPT hard drive

Post by ranasrule » Wed May 15, 2019 2:17 pm

The system I have taken an imag of is using legacy/MBR partition layout. The system I want to restore to only supports UEFI. Is it possible to restore the backup to the new system?

I'm afraid not. The UEFI layout requires an additional UEFI partition and GPT .
I would try, though.
