Converting OVA-deployed machine to EFI gives Error: No mapping found.

Reported by: reddot Owned by:

I'm generating OVA template which is intended to be tested for BIOS and UEFI boot capabilities. There is no problem with regular workflow, deploy machine, turn it on and continue with BIOS boot. But once I've turned on "Enable EFI" options in deployed machine settings I've got error from UEFI interactive shell - Error: No mapping found. It seems VirtualBox doesn't generate UEFI default boot entries for OVA-deployed instance. Could it be fixed?

This should work with VirtualBox 6.1 which implements proper NVRAM handling.

Tested on VirtualBox 6.1.4 Switching deployed OVA to EFI works fine in case of SATA AHCI controller is used for disks For LsiLogic controller still get the error -- No mapping found
