    It's historic with me. I just never swapped from WinPE on my main machine. The other one was clean installed with W10 recently so I used WinRE there.

    I got the same message on my WinPE rescue but it didn't loop, just did the one download and completed the build. On another machine which uses WinRE there was no additional download so you may be able to create a WinRE rescue disk instead.
    Mine went directly to WinRE and updated as expected. I didn't even have it ask to download anything from Microsoft.

    I got the instructions on how to change from WinPE to WinRE, but didn't save them.

    Could you post 'em for forgetful me and anyone else who might need 'em?

    Thanks in Advance, Jim!

    Open Macrium.
    Select Create Rescue Media, select Advanced then Choose Base WIM.
    It will give you WinRe and other PE versions.

    It should over write your current media.

    Thank you kind sir! I appreciate it and I'm sure others will too.

    I'll include this in a short tutorial I'm writing on creating a rescue disk (USB stick) for my Windows 10 students.

    Is there any practical benefit to using WinRE instead of WinPE? I've tried both and really don't see any difference in operation. They are both very slow in loading from a CD.

    I was also trying to understand the differences and advantages Vs disadvantages between WinPE and WinRE and fell on this article (link below). Even being an old article, the explanation about the subject seems to be fair game:

    The biggest differences between WinPE and WinRE as they work in the .wim files just built is that WinPE loads network drivers and offers a more complete Vista-like command-line environment, while WinRE offers more and better boot- and disk-management and recovery tools. I chunked through the whole Windows command lexicon to create the information in Table 1. Note that everything WinPE can do, WinRE can also doósort of. Unless you set it up to load network drivers and supply it with TCP/IP configuration data, WinRE canít do what WinPE does automatically with commands such as arp, ipconfig, net, netsh, nbtstat, netstat, ping, pathping, print, route, and tracert.

    To me, this means youíll want to use WinPE with the original boot.wim image when you need network or printer access as part of your runtime repair-and-recovery environment. On the other hand, use WinRE from the winre.wim image when you want to use its recovery options or gain access to its more powerful and capable disk-and-boot recovery utilities at the command line.

    WinRE has WiFi support.

    The main advantage of using RE over PE is support for WiFi. When you make the WinRE rescue media it can optionally include you WiFi profile.

    If you select that option it will automatically connect when you boot from it.

    WinRE supports wifi networks so you will be able to access your backups even if a wifi connection to your storage is your only choice.
