Tried both methods the linux based and the winpe recovery media (purchased version). When I try to boot off the recovery media (tried cd and usb stick) it doesnt show up as a bootable option (f12). My oem windows cd and an acronis recovery cd boot fine uefi. Is there something additional i need to do in order to make this work. *** the recovery media does boot fine off my mbr windows laptop. The key point here is my system is set up for uefi boot in bios.
