Can't you simply restore from windows image backup not using uefi boot?
Eventually you would have to start in restore mode and edit the registry
to enable the IDE device for boot (I have done this from a dead machine
and it worked).

Don't think thay UEFI is required for booting windows 2008 anyway.
