I have created a vm in ESXi host using ubuntu16.04 iso image with UEFI boot(ubuntu16_uefi). Now i tried to create another ubuntu vm from flat.vmdk file of "ubuntu16_uefi" vm, but it is entering into the boot manager.
If i create a boot option from boot manager using grubx64.efi i can boot the vm.
Can someone help me how can i avoid this boot manager issue?

How exactly are you doing this? Did you copy/clone the VM, or files?
In case that you've copied the .vmdk files, did you also copy the .nvram file?
