    Surface 3 Will Not Boot Recovery Image, Tried Everything


    I have been searching the net for a solution to my problem and tried everything I can find.

    Background Info:

    Surface 3

    Bit locker locked- forgot key
    Formatted the whole SSD using Acronis. No recovery Partition.
    Tried 2.0 and 3.0 USB's / Formatted Fat32, Disabled secured Boot/ Downloaded Recovery and Generic Windows 10 ISO / Used Rufus GPT

    Only one Available option in the UEFI --> Network>USB>SSD

    Tried Everything

    Surface Only Boots in Linux and Acronis, other then that, stuck on the Red Surface screen.

    Any Help would be great, Im going to pull my hair out (haha)
