Doesn't matter, just that after you make the change, you need to boot in
UEFI mode.

Presuming you're booting BIBM, you wouldn't switch until after you change
it.

"use the chgdtype.tbs" but what do we do and in which order?
First your script>>disk is changed. But the 'BIOS' is still MBR/legacy
So, the PC restarts with an outtodate Bios >> do we have to go immediately
in the BIOS to switch to UEFI mode?
Not clear for me...

Ok, if I do the conversion, it will be from BIBM.
But BIBM is not OK with UEFI > so where does BIBM go after the conversion in UEFI ?

If you use chgdtype, BIBM will be deleted if on its own partition. Otherwise, it will remain where it is, but inactive. Script will tell on the sumary screen.
