What Can I Do If Message "The target ECS is not booted with UEFI. Create an ECS using the image whose boot mode is UEFI." Is Displayed During Migration Task Creation?

Updated at: Apr 13, 2020 GMT+08:00

Symptom

If the source server is booted with UEFI, message "The target ECS is not booted with UEFI. Create an ECS using the image whose boot mode is UEFI." is displayed when you create a migration task.

Causes

The target ECS is created using the BIOS image and cannot be started after the migration. You must select an ECS created using the image whose boot mode is UEFI.

Procedure

  1. Download the target UEFI image file. If the image file exists in your OBS bucket, go to 3.

  2. Upload the image file to the OBS bucket.
  3. Create a private image.

    1. Set Source to the image file uploaded.
    2. In the Image Information area, set Boot Mode to UEFI.

  4. Use the private image created in 3 to create an ECS.
