Restored MBR Image over UEFI PXE doesn't boot



  • Hi,

    since i got UEFI PXE working i tried to restore one of my common images that are using MBR, restore was working without any flaws but booting the system does not work.

    It seems that there is a difference when booting windows via legacy or uefi, what exactly is it and is there a way to get a MBR Image running or am i forced to create two images (legacy, uefi)?

    Regards X23

    Sure, that works but i want a working state whatever pxe was initiated from (legacy or uefi). What are the differences or the requirements to boot between legacy or uefi partition layout or bootmanager settings?

    There are a lot of differences - and taking an image in one mode and deploying it in another mode will never go well.

    If you want your final product to be in UEFI mode, then that image needs built on a computer that’s already in UEFI mode.

    If you want your final product to be in Legacy mode, then that image needs built on a computer that’s already in Legacy mode.

    Did you flip the system back to legacy after imaging completed?
