This is not supported I'm afraid.

You can only restore UEFI to UEFI and non-UEFI to non-UEFI.

Sorry I don't have better news.

Hi,

Cross platform restore (UEFI to classic BIOS or classic BIOS to UEFI) is not supported by SSR 2013.

You can only restore Recovery Points from one UEFI server to another UEFI server.

It's a big problem to a restore plan. Must have another same server with UEFI bios :o(

Hi,

Just wanted to check if there is any specific need to restore on BIOS mode servers? I believe most of the server hardware support both BIOS and UEFI modes.

-Thanks,
