[PVE-User] P2V and UEFI...

I need to P2V a debian 8 server, installed on UEFI/GPT.

A little complication born by the fact that i need to P2V in the same
server (eg, image the server, reinstall it with proxmox, then create
the VM), but i can move data elsewhere (to keep OS image minimal) and
test the image with other PVE installation.

Normally, i use 'mondobackup' for that, but mondo does not support UEFI
(at least in debian).


Also, i prefere to keep data in a second (virtual) disk, and backup
that by other mean (bacula) so i need to ''repartition'' (better:
reorganize data) in disks.


So, summarizing: what tool it is better to use to do a (preferibly
offline) image of some partition of a phisical server, respecting UEFI
partitioning schema?


I hope i was clear. Thanks.
