If a recovery URL is available include it in the message.If you select the “Use custom recovery URL” option the URL you type in the “Custom recovery URL option” text box will replace the default URL in the default recovery message which will be displayed in the pre-boot key recovery screen.Note: Not all characters and languages are supported in pre-boot.
