Testing UEFI on a non UEFI sysytem can be done in VMWARE

Hi everyone

(Copy of post I made on W8 Forums - but some people don't use those so I've posted here too).

Some people might like to test the possibilities of UEFI systems even though their current machines aren't equipped with it.

It IS possible to do this in a Virtual machine even if the HOST system is a non UEFI machine.

Edit Manually the VM configuration for the VM you want to test this feature with.

Add the following like to the .VMX (machine configuration file)
firmware = “efi”

Note that you must do this BEFORE installing the VM and you can't change it afterwards.

Cheers
jimbo
