Can't figure out how to make Hyper-V Windows 10 UEFI image

Recommended Posts

To my knowledge a Hyper-V UEFI VM can only be made with the generation 2 VM, which I've read is not supported by SmartDeploy. Is there some workaround to make a UEFI image that I don't know about? Or is it just not possible with Hyper-V?

Hi Justin,

SmartDeploy does not support capturing UEFI-based VMs (regardless of the platform). SmartDeploy has supported deployment to UEFI-based target devices since version 1.1.4000, but it is not necessary (or supported) to match the UEFI boot method from the source VM to the target device. You can simply create the VM as a BIOS-based VM, capture it, create UEFI-compatible SmartDeploy media (which is the default), and you should be able to deploy the image without issue.

If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to reach out at support (at) smartdeploy.com.
