I will be buying a Win 8 machine and am trying to understand something.
I think if you create a Windows image you can use the feature within Windows to recover it.

I have Macrium. Will I be able to still use the Linux rescue disc to recover a Macrium image if I disable the UEFI feature and launch CSM. Can I then work in the UEFI and when restarting, find the rescue disc to recover an image made with Macrium?

The two bootable disks below will boot with Secure Boot & UEFI ENABLED, as they use WinPE4 to boot.

Also any 3rd party Partitioning,Backup & Cloning software, which fully supports Windows 8, uEFI, GPT & Secure Boot, which is signed by Microsoft, as they use WinPE4 to boot.

Hello
As I understand it, if you use a Window's Image you need a sophisticated rescue disc.

if you disable the secure boot and enable launch CMA(unless you have legacy)Macrium's rescue disc will work as it is now like the older BIOS.
Thank you
Peter

How to make the Windows 8 rescue CD/DVD & USB are in post 2.
