Hello -- after waiting for almost a year, my  hp laptop -- via windows update -- was updated from 1909 to  20H2 --  I guess there was no need to got to 2004 first,  On  my other computers that  are at 20H2, the RE version is 2004 --- So on my just update laptop  if I update  reflect recovery boot image from the now PE version to RE will it use the 2004 version of RE?  Thanks

If you select WinRE in the Choose Base WIM tab and click OK, then the Status section at the top of the main Rescue Media Builder interface should identify the version of WinRE that will be used.

The WinRE with Windows 10 20H2 is 2004.  Like with last year's updates, there was one where the WinRE was not bumped up between Windows 10 revisions.  The 20H2 update did the same thing.  It uses the 2004 WinRE which is, of course, 2004.  Because 20H2 was really mostly just collecting the 2004 updates into one roll in package, with a few minor features.

yes -- that is the case ....  it seems that the RE verson is much larger then PE version when making an ISO --- Just now I have to burn a DVD not a CD

Or you can use something like Rufus to copy that ISO to a flash drive or just use the native flash drive target support in the Rescue Media Builder if you want to skip that step.
