What (boot) files are needed to make Win 10 EFI recovery station bootable ISO image?

Recommended Posts

In Windows 10 I created the recovery station on USB. Looking into the content I found that this recovery station is meant for UEFI. This is new for me, as I am used to use ImgBurn to create ISO images using Microsoft bootfiles to make an image a bootable ISO file. So I need to know what files (and/or settings) I have to use to make this image bootable as I only could find this location on the recovery station for any boot related files './EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi'. Do I need this one and if not, then what do I need to make this image a bootable ISO image file using UEFI? Are there any other settings too that need to change as well for UEFI? B.t.w, I found a manual 'here', at the 'advanced' tab you'll find the 'bootable disc' section to choose 'Make image bootable' and then you have to choose Boot image location, Platform ID, Load segment, sectors to load.

That depends, how old is the PC you intend to use it on. If it's within the past 5-6 years it is UEFI based

Thanks for your reply,

You're right, it's a brandnew HP Envy notebook and I know that BIOS is predecessor of UEFI. Anyways, I found out that there's only on this location boot related files './EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi' . So my guess is that this might be the image boot file, but I'm not sure of it. That's why I ask for more info, because I presume that then also other settings need to be adjusted, is that correct? And if so, what are those settings to be changed?
