It's stating that your destination device does not support UEFI BOOT.

So your  VM may need also UEFI, and your hosts may also need to support UEFI.

Also there have been issues with hosts in EVC mode.

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
The VM must have UEFI options, and you may want to check your Hosts, support UEFI, and disable EVC which can cause an issue.

It has been reported that ESXi 5.5 and EVC enabled on the cluster causes this issue. It's a bug.
