I have Paragon Hard Disk Manager Basic 16.5, which allows me to create rescue media. Currently, I am creating a rescue USB from a laptop that runs Windows 10. During the creation process, I was prompted to provide the location of the ADK, which I directed to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10.

After installing the WinPE addon, I created the ISO and used Rufus to write it. However, the contents of the ISO appear to be intended for UEFI systems as there is an EFI directory on the USB. Unfortunately, the laptop I am using only has one mode, which is legacy, and its firmware setup does not support UEFI.

There is no option to switch between legacy and UEFI mode. While an early version of WinPE may work for a motherboard firmware that is running in legacy mode, I am unsure how to create rescue media using an early WinPE version.
