Creating UEFI image for 2016 server

Is there a way to create a new VM using UEFI instead of BIOS?

In VMware there was an option to change it pretty easy but I don't see a similar option within Nutanix. We are trying to create our 2016 server image but we need it to be UEFI.

Thank you

Hi @sandeepmp

 

Do I do this before I boot it up the first time?

I tried this but it didn't work because it stated that the boot file was missing.

Update:

 

So I figured out how to create a UEFI VM but it appears that when you sysprep and then capture that VM as an image it does not carry the EFI_BOOT=True setting. I have to run the same command for any new VM I create using my image.
