    Will AOMEI Bootable Recovery CD, boot with Secure Boot ENABLED?
    Not the version that I used. I just disabled Secure Boot, did what I needed to do and then re-enabled Secure Boot.

    Looks like Macrium release (5.1) is OK for full support. Using WinPE4.

    Macrium Reflect Backup and Hard Disk Imaging for Windows 7, Vista, XP and Server 2003/2008

    The only thing that I don't like about Macrium is that it's not technically free for commercial business use and I use this laptop at work. That's what I like about Aomei..it's licensed for business use too.

    Aomei does winpe 4 also. Excellent for a freebie.

    I might have a go at cobbling something together which make one for you. It should be fine with secure boot.

    I will try newest aomei tomorrow. My current winpe disk from them had to boot in legacy mode. Maybe that changed in version 1.1.

    Does this include the Paragon Free Backup and Recovery 2012? It says "Full Windows 8 Support" here but I'm expecting it doesn't meet all the criteria you mention above?
    Not tried Paragon Free Backup and Recovery 2012, I use Paragon 12 paid for.

    The Paragon 12 partition free only supports MBR HDD's.
    I have a HP G6-2213sa laptop. If I bought Paragon Backup & recovery 12 Home would I then be able to make a bootable disc?
    I tried Acronis and couldn't get it to boot.

    That would be a YES.

    No I didn't make the recovery discs. Why do I have to do the manufacturers recovery discs if Paragon will do it?
