WHS2011 USB Restore Drive Does Not Boot Surface Pro

Hi!

 

At the suggest of someone who responded to my MS Forum post, I am seeking help on this forum.

 

WHS 2011 produces a UEFI enabled boot disk (BD) to use on a client computer to perform a restore operation. This BD works on my desktop computers running Win7 and my laptops running Win8 & 8.1. GPT formatted using Rufus 2.2, the BD does NOT boot my Surface Pro! I have several backups of my Surface Pro on the WHS 2011 server, but am unable to access them to restore the Surface Pro after a failed upgrade to Windows 10.

 

I am looking for a way to create a USB drive that will boot the Surface Pro and to which I can add the server connection wizard files in order to perform a restore. The best solution would be for Microsoft to provide a KB article containing a download that would do just that. In lieu of that happening, I am asking for your help in creating one.

 

All suggestions are welcome. I have tried a lot of different approaches, but so far none have worked.

 

Thanks!
