In the Symantec Endpoint Encryption v 11.1 environment, the traditional WinPE recovery tool does not work with Opal v2-compliant drives that do not have an eDrive dependency. Although the need to recover a drive is rare, as a precaution, create a USB recovery drive. If required, use this USB drive to attempt recovery of the Opal v2-compliant drive.

Prerequisite: Ensure that the drive has a minimum of 1 GB of space.
The USB drive is now a bootable UEFI drive.
