Working with a Windows 10 laptop and StorageCraft Shadow Protect Desktop.

I have restored an image for a Windows 10 laptop UEFI to a brand new drive in a laptop.  The old drive was failing, and the replacement drive is the same Brand | Model | Capacity and RPM. I made the boot environment from a download of their Recovery Environment version 1.1.9  this week.  When the restore shows completed.. I hit File | exit and then reboot the machine.

 When the machine reboots... If the Recovery Environment USB is plugged in - the machine boots directly to the Recovery environment (no F12 needed to select boot option) i.e. it thinks the USB is C:|

If the RE USB is not plugged in, I get a "no boot media found" message.

Somehow the "C" is not being assigned properly.

The primry partition is a system drive: C:\... no other drive partitions except the small ones that MS creates.  The Backup imge that we are restoring is for "C only"

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
