Restoring MBR format disk to NVMe SSD

Veeam Logoby swin12 » Thu Jul 06, 2017 4:20 pm

If the disk type for my backup was MBR, should I be able to restore it to an NVMe SSD? Currently I haven't been able to get this to work.

I have the option to change between Legacy and UEFI boot in the BIOS settings, but the result is the same (black screen -> return to boot menu).

Hi Ryan,

Can you elaborate was the operating system and system reserved partitions both restored via BMR? Thanks.

Hi Dima,

The OS is Windows 10, and I have 3 partitions from the source:

1. System Reserved
2. Windows
3. Lenovo Recovery Partition

I kept the partition scheme from the source, so I attempted to restore all 3 of the partitions listed above.

I am unsure what happens behind the scenes during this process, but I assume Veeam Endpoint uses the same partition style as the source (in this case MBR) during recovery?

You will need to perform a clean install. Your system is MBR. NVMe system drive boot requires UEFI and GPT partition.

Is this true for a volume level restore atop a clean install of Win10?
