Welcome to the future. Ever since 2000, EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) has struggled to replace the decades-old BIOS, and now, some 13 years later, it’s finally really here. More than ever before, new computers, laptops, notebooks, and other computing devices are being shipped that use an entirely new and very much different technology as the foundation that powers the actual hardware, sitting between your motherboard/CPU and the operating system.
EFI is pretty nifty and very powerful, and opens a lot of new and exciting possibilities for your computer. It lets Windows theoretically boot faster than ever before, and can protect your computer against malware and viruses thanks to enhanced security features like signed bootloaders. And for Windows users, EFI means GPT (GUID Partition Table) instead of MBR (Master Boot Record). Abbreviations got you confused? Don’t worry – it just means that your computer now supports hard disks that are bigger than ever before (more than 2TiB in size!).
But all this comes at a very heavy cost. Like we said, (U)EFI and GPT are radically different from what we had before. Naturally, this means that there are also fewer resources, tools, and utilities for dealing with this new technology; but today, all that changes.
We’re proud to introduce the latest version of our Windows Recovery Discs; as of version 4.1, Easy Recovery Essentials for Windows now has full and 100% complete support for the latest EFI machines running on GPT disks. To our knowledge, EasyRE is actually the first EFI repair product of its kind! It does what even Microsoft’s official setup and repair CDs can’t: when your EFI machine won’t boot to Windows, our recovery CDs will automatically search for defects in the EFI boot chain, reconfigure your GPT-based partitions as needed, and get you back into Windows!!
We’re excited to be at the forefront of this new technology, and hope to be there for PC users when their brand new PCs suddenly stop booting due to viruses, failed Windows Updates, buggy software, or sheer bad luck. Easy Recovery Essentials for Windows supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, as well as Server 2003, 2008, and 2012! EFI support is fully functional for Windows Vista/Server 2008 and above.
