    Hello Sebastian,

    Please make sure, that VMware VM that your are about to convert is UEFI one.
    Which Hyper-V version are you using?

    Hello Alexander,

    the Hyper-V Version is Windows Server 2012 R2.

    The VMware VM is not UEFI. The VM use BIOS. Can i Change BIOS to UEFI simply?

    Sebastian, unfortunately there is not way to change BIOS to UEFI, you have to completely re-create and reinstall this VM.
    So if you want to have it as Gen2, it is easier to create it on Hyper-V from scratch.
