Ghost solution suite restoring an image take from a BIOS or UEFI computer and restored to a computer with the opposite hardware.
Ghost Solution Suite 3.x
Ghost command lines are also applicable to Deployment Solution 8.x.
There isn't an error but a question will be displayed as following.
The source is MBR and was captured on a BIOS system. the destination system appears to be UEFI, Convert Destination disk to GPT?
This will be displayed when the Ghost image being deployed is detected as being created on a BIOS or Legacy computer and is detected as now being deployed to a UEFI system.
Generally if you are deploying a BIOS based image to a UEFI system it is appropriate to convert the image.
To suppress this question from the command line there are 2 options.
To not convert the image to UEFI the addition of the -FMBR command line switch can be added to the ghost command line to force the image to be restored into an MBR partition rather than converting it to a GPT partition
To suppress the question and not perform any conversions but to restore it in the format that it was created in the -noconvert switch can be used. This way if the image was created as GPT it will restore as GPT and if it was created as MBR it will restore as MBR.
