Have you had success in creating the USB and booting it in UEFI mode ?.

Also please do the below steps and let us know the result.

1. Download "MountstorPe" from http://www.kare-net.de/Download/MountStorPe.zip

2. Extract the archive and you will find "mountstorPE.exe" inside the folder named "Files". Right click on it and choose "Run As Administrator". This utility will try to assign drive letters to hidden partitions. If it works as expected, recovery partition will be assigned with a drive letter and you will be able to browse the contents using explorer.

Let me know whether "MountstorPE" can mount the recovery partition successfully.

Can you add it with EasyBCD now? It may boot with a drive letter.

Add the "WInRE.WIM" to BCD store using "EasyBCD" but before trying to boot from it, run the below command and attach the resulting file with next reply.

Bcdedit /enum >L:\BCD.TXT

Feel free to change the drive letter if needed. Attach the file with next reply and we can check whether it is possible to use the "EasyBCD" method instead manually restoring OS from the SWM file.

The l letter refers to the recovery partition that came with laptop or the one I have made?

You can use any drive letter other than the one for built in recovery partition. Be it D , E , or L , output of the command will be saved there with the name BCD.TXT. Simply attach that file with next reply.
