Jeff Harris posted a topic in SmartDeploy EnterpriseProblem: When attempting to capture an image, you receive the error message: "Capturing guid partition table virtual disks is not currently supported." Resolution: This error indicates that the virtual machine is configured to boot with EFI instead of BIOS, or that it is a 'Generation 2' Hyper-V virtual machine. You will need to create a new virtual machine with that setting disabled in VMware, or as a 'Generation 1' virtual machine in Hyper-V, and re-install Windows.
I have created a new image for Windows 8.1 using Smart Deploy. Everything works great and this image works on 3 models of Lenovo with no issues. I did this mostly as a test in the environment I'm in because Windows 8.1 is not used on the production computers. After getting the basics down, I discovered that the machines that are EFI-aware, are not activating Windows 8.1 because the proper partitions are not installed. See this link for what those should be: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh825686.aspx I'm not sure how to use VirtualBox to setup a Windows 8.1 image that will install on a EFI based computer/laptop that will automatically activate Windows 8.1. Could someone provide guidance?
