VMware and Windows 7 in UEFI mode

Hello!

I found one option on VMware VM config file that I can enable UEFI mode on VM.

Did anyone try to setup this and what is requirements for that ?
Do I need USB memory to install it on VM or I can use .iso file, what I need to do ?

(Note : My Host OS is NOT in UEFI mode, is this problem?)

Thank you in advance.

I follow step 11 from UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows.

Can I just with oscdimg.exe make ISO file and use it ? I try that, mount it to VM (from VMware) but when that try to boot I got error. There is no error just unsuccessful and countinue to try to boot from network.

What I did wrong and how to boot from that ISO file ?

Thank you in advance.

I don't know what to do next. I have UEFI, VM is configured but unbootable from ISO.

Iso file is fresh, I tried Win8 too but no luck.

If someone tried that : Can you write steps how to make it work ?

Thanks in advance.
