SBS 2011 - UEFI or Legacy BIOS?
Posted on 2013-05-23
Doing a new SBS 2011 install for a client. Last one was about 6 months ago and I recall having problems with UEFI (backups, restores, etc.) so went with legacy BIOS mode.
Their new Dell T620 came set in UEFI mode. Thinking of blowing it away and reinstalling in Legacy BIOS mode.
My goal is STABILITY and RELIABLE backups / restores.
The question is - what, if any, benefits are there to using UEFI on an SBS 2011 Server? To me it just seems to complicate things, but maybe I'm missing something. Once the BIOS hands off to the OS, it's out of the way - unless UEFI brings some big benefit to the party - why bother?
What's your opinion - UEFI or Legacy BIOS? And why?
