    One odd thing: every time I restart, at first I get the message "No boot devices available. Press F1 to retry / F2 for setup / " etc. When I hit F1, the boot completes. Any ideas on how to make this go away?

    In any case, I am cautiously rejoicing at my newly recovered computer! Thank you so much for all your help! Macrium truly is amazing.
    You need to go into BIOS settings and disable legacy BIOS (usually called CSM) mode booting and make sure the desired GPT/UEFI disk to boot from is at the top of the boot priority list. Also disable Network Stack (sometimes called PXE) booting.

    Thanks zbook for the Minitool instruction - looks like the issue is an extraneous GPT partition (the unformatted, 128MB volume listed here):

    Do you think it's safe to go ahead and delete that partition? Seems pretty clear that it is vestigial at this point...Disk Management does not see it at all:

    Thanks so much,

    Hmm - just from testing some potential changes in Minitool, it looks like deleting or formatting the partition would not change the GPT status. I think I need to go in with diskpart in order to remove it.

    I am pretty confident that this is the correct partition to reset, but another vote of confidence would help me go for it...this has all been an ordeal that I don't wish to repeat!

    Update: zbook, just saw your last post. Running the scripts, stay tuned...

    Please open the BIOS and post images of the settings for: UEFI
