That's the correct procedure. The KB article is for MBR type drives, but the procedure is the same for GPT (https://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=618). After the procedure, WinRE will usually be enabled on the Windows partition in the hidden \Recovery folder (e.g. \Recovery\WindowsRE).

Hi... If you are using BIU with EMBR the system is not UEFI anymore, right?

I'm not using BIU. I'm using BIBM. At some level, It's UEFI because it has UEFI firmware rather than traditional BIOS, but I have the UEFI firmware set to do legacy booting, so, in a lot of respects, it behaves as if it were not UEFI.

I see. My new laptop is just tested Win 10/ Ubuntu UEFI mode and i want to keep it so. I like enormously the way Bootit isolates the desired partitions - I think it's the only one in the world - only that Bootit UEFI seems to lack that feature, I'm yet to find out.

BIU can hide partitions too.

You say hide/unhide as you need, as I understand.
Hiding means they are there, I'd like very much the old approach getting them out of the partition table somehow, I'm yet to study this GPT, also yet to test Bootit UEFI.
