Good research there too;)

Good to know you found the solution for your prob.

Is the time taken to complete the restore same/different withinWindows/recovery envir?
I don't see a difference in time. if you start in windows environment, it boots you into the recovery environment, and it starts up for you the particular recovery job that you chose. Just a matter of convenience, really. Once it actually starts, it is the same process
