Talking Recovery Image Info

I have now had several people use the image from my EN-GB Surface on non-en-gb devices and all appears to be well, only difference noticed so far is the support number stays on the english one and doesnt change regardless of language pack.

I'd like to get and store copies of all regional installs if possible, if anyone out there (here) has other versions then drop me a PM and I'll stick them somewhere on t'interweb so we can recover if we need to...

Thanks a million Trig0r!!! I need to bring my RT back to life as I installed 8.1 in German and my recvery image didn't work don't know why.

I am downloading your image now and I see it is a ISO file, should I unpack it and copy it to my USB or what?

Just copy the files in the recovery to a fat32 formatted usb drive, then hold the volume down button plus power button, this will take time to boot but its normal.
Grabbed that from another thread on the subject chap.
