You can also find a read/write NTFS driver (based on ntfs-3g) HERE.

System Requirements:

A computer or virtual machine with a UEFI firmware.


Download the driver and copy it to a partition that you can access from an UEFI Shell.
Then, from the UEFI Shell, issue a command such as:

load ntfs_x64.efi
map -r

After the map command has been executed, you should be able to access your NTFS partitions.
