Is there any way to transfer a legacy bios boot system to UEFI and keep all the data and programs?
My customer freaks out if a single icon is out of place.  Customer has a Dell Latitude E6410 running Windows 7 Pro. We're looking at the Latitude E7490.  This is a UEFI only computer.  In fact from what I'm reading Intel will be UEFI only by 2020.  Goodby bios.  Ordinarily I'd  upgrade to Windows 10 on the E6410 and figure out a way to port this over to the new machine. Lots of time saved, happy customer.  Can't do this with a legacy system to the E7490.  Is there any way to transfer a legacy/boot/mbr machine to UEFI?
Thanks,
Al
