It looks like a new Windows 8.1.1 was released this morning.
When installing Windows 8.1 using the dvd media, it would guide to a page where I can download the 8.1.1 version.
The attempt might be to resolve the System Image backup issue. For it now does create a new Recovery partition of 350mb under UEFI boot mode.
(Note - A fresh Windows 8.1 install under Legacy boot mode creates a 350mb Recovery partition. There was no issue with System Image backup/recovery in my tests).
However, testing the new 8.1.1 System Image backup (under UEFI), I still got the following error messages -
'There was a failure in preparing the backup image of one of the volumes in the backup set (0x807800C5).
Original, this error got the following info - The specific backup disk cannot be found . (0x80780081).
Testing it a 2nd time writing to a different HDD, the additional info is different - The mounted backup volume is inaccessible. Please retry the operation. (0x8078004F).
Did anyone get the similar messages? Any workaround/suggestions?
Can MS Engineers look into the System Image backup/Recovery issue further for a permanent solution? Help!
