Secure Boot Hyper-V

Hello we've got got a bunch of VM's hosted on two server 2016 servers.  All VM's are managed using Hyper-V.  We've got a requirement to enable Secure boot on all connected devices including VM's,  we've got a single VM which we've been able to enable secure boot on.  I've followed the suggestions in the following article, the problem is not all VM's have the Firmware Section & Under Security No Secure Boot just "Encrypt State and virtual machine migration traffic"

The VM must be Generation 2 to support SecureBoot and uEFI GPT partitions on the VHDX file(s). Thus, only operating systems that are supported in a Generation 2 configuration would work.

Is there an easy way to convert gen 1 to gen 2?
Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/StorageCommented:
If the operating system is supported in a generation 2 VM then there are a number of V2V (Virtual to Virtual) methods and utilities out there.

We tend to use StorageCraft ShadowProtect for this. But, there are others out there.
