    The recovery partition here is the standard W10 recovery partition used if you want to reset your pc.
    Except that every standard recovery partition I have ever seen Windows 10 create has been either 450 or 500 MB in size, not 1 GB.

    I fully agree that the recovery partition containing the Windows 8/8.1 factory image is already gone on this tablet.

    A wimboot partition would be at least 5GB. I have seen some odd sized recovery partitions when doing an upgrade. For clean installs, they are normally 450 MB as you say.

    The Recovery partition in question is the WinRE partition.. OEM's can set any size of EFI and WinRE partition..

    You are referring to a standard clean install recommended partitions sizes..

    there are many reasons why the WinRE recovery partition would need to be larger...

    500MB of touch friendly drivers would increase the winre.wim and recovery partition size..
