    The recovery options on the installation dvd are the same as you would get on the repair cd/dvd.

    You may as well just use that.

    You might want to make a copy of the installation dvd - in case it gets scratched/whatever.

    Pretty easy to do.

    Any iso handling/burning program will do that - plenty of free versions around.

    OK - I'll just use the original installation DVD. However, I wonder why the system repair disc burned by Windows 8 doesn't work? There is either a problem with Windows 8 producing a system repair disc which can UEFI boot, else there is a problem with my system.

    Can someone who has Windows 8 Media Edition 64 bit please burn a CD/DVD system repair disc and see if will complete a UEFI boot to the start screen.

    Thanks for your help. Failure to boot from a DVD repair disc seems to be a 'feature' of my system. I'll use your alternative solutions which do work for me.
