Hi,

 

The TN below refers to SDR, but the principle is the same:

It states:

However, backups of UEFI-based computers cannot be restored to standard BIOS-based computers.

Thanks!

SDR supports recovering computers that use the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) standard. However, backups of UEFI-based computers cannot be restored to standard BIOS-based computers
