  • Have a look at this from the microsoft support:

  • Probably not a good idea to use an upgraded install for your image, if that's what you're doing. - nheyne 5 years ago
    • That is what i might do. i'll be cloning these. why is probably not a good idea? - jcoffey 5 years ago
      • Best practice is always to use a clean install to capture an image, with an upgraded install there is always residual leftovers from the previous OS that are not necessary for your deployment and can take up space and introduce possible compatibility issues. I'm not saying it won't work, just that it's typically not recommended. Your current issue points to that. - nheyne 5 years ago
    • good to know, thanks. helps me decide. these tablets came with windows 8.1. i may just have to grab the image from that. - jcoffey 5 years ago
  • You could always build a custom WinPE with the drivers for the table and load it onto a virtual machine and build your Windows 10 image from there. - LlamaStew 5 years ago
  • For the tablets. Not the table lol - LlamaStew 5 years ago

Have you tried using Dell's Sysprep creator? I usually have better luck with it.
