    If our Recovery partition is at the end of the drive (after the OS partition) we can just resize.

    If the Recovery partition is located at the beginning of the drive, resizing the partition will be a problem after the OS has already been installed. This has to be done while installing Windows. What we do is, when we get to Windows Setup. Click "New" to create a temporary partition (which we will use later for when we resize the Recovery partition). Click "New" again to let Windows Setup create the default partitions. Delete the temporary partition we created. Click "Next" to begin installing Windows. After Windows is installed, we can resize the Recovery partition then replace the Winre.wim with the Win10XPE boot.wim

    So, replacing the Winre.wim can also be done manually without modifying the Windows install.wim Image. This is especially good for Windows 10 1909 (19H2) and older versions
