Corrupt file in EFI partition

Corrupt file in EFI partition

Corrupt file in EFI partition

I have an problem with an Server 2012 R2 virtual server.
Symantec BE 2014 started reporting that backups of the server were unsuccesfull because of file corruption in the EFI-partition.
I have tried assigning a driveletter to the partition using diskpart, and shure enough chkdsk tells me that there is corruption which should be fixed.
Now the problem is that chkdsk can not lock the drive in order to fix errors.
I have tried booting the server into various offline OS like Windows PE, but I cannot get the problem solved. Drive cannot be locked.

Any suggestions ?
