I use the recovery media created on this laptop. So, the original question: what kind of Windows running in this recocery media?
Anyway, the problem was that the 'backup set' is too large for a pendrive but now I have an enough large USB3 HDD and now
the recovery is running. I just don't understand why I couldn't recover from a SMB share? (and, is the Windows version running in
the recovery media a secret?
- to get a suitable NIC driver)
