Windows 7: Win 7 System Restore Disc not recognized

Win 7 System Restore Disc not recognized

I was trying to change my laptop from BIOS to EFI and part of the preparation included creating a system restore disc. I used the tool in the control panel to create the disc and when the tool finished, it reported a successful outcome. I got to the point where I needed to use the restore disc and when I started it up to run it, it said something like 'the rescue disc is not compatible with the OS'. I don't have any idea how that could be. Can someone explain what happened?
