When attempting to restore a Windows machine using Bare Metal Recovery, the restore displays the warning:
OS disk in backup uses MBR disk. This may cause boot issues on UEFI systems
The Bare Metal Recovery restore has detected that the system within the selected restore point was using MBR at the time of backup, and the system that the restore is being run on has been booted with UEFI BIOS.
Change BIOS settings from UEFI to Legacy Mode
If your machine supports the legacy BIOS mode, use the legacy BIOS mode instead of the UEFI mode.
If your machine does not support the legacy BIOS mode, the steps below will provide instructions on restoring the MBR-based backup to a UEFI system.
Boot from the Veeam Recovery Media.
Go to Tools and start the Command Prompt utility.
Run the following commands one by one:
DISKPART> list disk
At this step, find the disk that you are going to use as a restore destination for the primary operating system. In this example, we assume that disk 0 is a restore destination for the primary operating system.
DISKPART> select disk 0
Mind that the following command will remove all data from disk 0.
Start the Bare Metal Recovery process; note that you will still see the "OS disk in backup uses MBR disk" warning during the restore process. On the "Restore Mode" tab, choose [Manual restore (advanced)]. Do not restore the system partition, and do not delete the partitions created in the previous step.
You may have to configure the disk layout manually. Restore the OS volume from the backup to the free space on the destination disk.
After the restore process completes, do not reboot the machine.
Go to Tools > Command Prompt utility and run the following commands: Note: The drive letter G: is used in this example as it was the drive letter created in the Diskpart example above. If you used a different letter, please adjust the command accordingly. It is advisable to use the "list vol" command within diskpart to check which drive letters were assigned to each volume.
