    Yep I do. . lol. . My next step is to Mount Windows 10 ISO to Virtual DVD Drive. . I suppose I can create an ISO image from using the Media Creation Tool?

    Yes. Quoting tutorial:

    2.2) Mount Windows 10 ISO as virtual DVD drive (right click ISO image, select Mount). Copy its content to your new Recovery drive

    2.3) On your Recovery drive, browse to Sources folder and delete install.wim, or install.esd file in case your ISO was made using Windows Media Creation Tool. Replace the deleted WIM or ESD file by copying your custom install.wim to same folder
    Just copy everything from mounted Media Creation Tool ISO to your new recovery partition, then delete the install.esd from its Sources folder, and copy your custom install.wim to same folder.

    Be sure to download correct bit version, the same than your current Windows installation (either 32 or 64 bit). Do not download the ISO with both bit versions.

    Kari, you're right. . That was pretty easy. . Of course, I won't know if the recovery image works until the next time I do a fresh install. . lol. I did not get any errors, so i'm to assume everything is fine.

    Is there any possible way to disable the "bootup screen" when booting up to Windows, or is that required just in case something goes wrong with the OS itself?

    This is something I would like to disable as well.

    The boot menu entry is not required, although removing it adds some steps to recovery. If the entry is removed, recovery must be started by booting from Windows install media and opening Command Prompt, then launching Windows Setup manually from recovery partition.

    To remove boot menu entry, press WIN + R to open Run prompt, type msconfig and hit Enter. System Configuration window will be shown.

    Select Boot tab, select Recovery boot menu entry, click Delete, click OK. That's it.

    A good idea. As you can see in screenshot in my last post, I have the delay set for three seconds.

    @Kari,

    I have another question for you. I have installed a few more software programs that I would like to have on my custom recovery. Would all I have to do is create a new install.wim and override the one in my Recovery Partition?
