Missing efi files

    Yea Toshiba I THINK wants close to 40 for it. Could be wrong about the price, been a while since I looked. If I was going to pay that I would buy windows instead. Wish I could just find the files needed for the ESP.

    Did you try what Genet posted in post no 8? If you do buy Windows 8.1 you should be able to use the DVD to install on that PC and save the new product code for use on another PC. My Microsoft MSDN Windows 8.0 ISO will read and use the embedded OEM product code in my laptops BIOS. It came with Windows 8.0 pre installed by ASUS. Assuming Windows 8.1 does the same thing, you shouldn't get prompted to enter a code during the install. I personally haven't confirmed that 8.1 does do this though, only 8.0.

    I tried using a file recovery app, it found bootmgr.exe.mui. Would I be able to use the method mentioned above with a windows 7 recovery disc. I seen they have a 8.1 enterprise eval, might could try it right. I wish they had the regular 8.1 eval available.
