I am trying and failing to p2v one of my servers that boots with uefi on a Dell r710 server loaded with Windows Server Std 2008 Sp2. It has raid 5 with 2 partitions, one is the os that sits at 50 gb's and the other is the data which is over 4 tb's. I don't need to p2v the data part but when I attempt to use VMware vcenter converter it fails saying that uefi is not supported or compatible. Disk2vhd also fails, however I did not see an error. I am wondering if anyone knows of a tool or a work around to get this puppy virtualized? Any support is very much appreciated.
