    OK Great I have created a Gpt partition scheme for uefi with a file system of ntfs, copied the recovery partition to the stick excluding system volume information now all I have to do is boot from the memory stick?

    After getting in touch with the Microsoft forum, they said that winload.efi was missing and usually the product key is embedded in the BIOS/UEFI so I decided the easiet way was to purchase another product key for 30 euro and roll back to 8.1 pro..

    Thank you KYHI

    What did the tablet come with for an OS ??
    Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10 all come from the OEM with a Firmware Embedded Product Key

    No need to purchase another product key - just reinstall original OS (if 8 then 8.1)
