Description of problem:
Kubevirt doesn't support UEFI, but the import wizard doesn't block import of VMware VMs with EFI firmware. This should be blocked in the UI, or at least warned, to not create unusable VMs.
The property of VMware side is "Vm.Config.Firmware" and the value is either "bios" or "efi". Only "bios" should be allowed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.5.8
Leaving this on the blocker list since UEFI is very common and would cause lots of frustration to let the user fail.
