    Hello to everyone.

    I've installed Windows XP 32 and 64 bit as virtual machine with VMware on my Ubuntu 23.10. The goal is to be able to boot them in UEFI mode. To achieve this goal I've followed this tutorial :

    At a certain point of the video,he changes the boot mode from BIOS to UEFI.

    I did the same,but In my case it won't change. The button is greyed out.

    I've also converted those xp virtual machines from vmdk to img and I tried to boot them with bhyve (the hypervisor used on FreeBSD),but they didn't boot.

    So,I can't check if the vmdk images are able to boot with VMware because I'm not able to enable the UEFI option and I can't check if they don't boot with bhyve because I can't check if they boot with UEFI in VMware.
