Applying Image to Surface 3 (Not Pro) Apply Image Super Slow & Fails
03/08/2016 1684 views
So I have my PBE's upto date with all the network drivers. I just today went ahead and created a Windows 10 PBE as well incase it worked better.
I have been using the USB EFI Boot method for imaging pretty much any tablet device for a while now with no issues. The Surface 3 however is giving me a problem that I have not solved.
I am not getting a flat out error that would indicate missing a driver needed in the environment, but I have a super slow Apply Image task (almost 24 hours) and at random it will fail. I have not been able to successfully image any Surface 3 yet.
I do not know if its to do with the hardware, or some kind of lockdown on the device.
I have EFI mode on, Secure Boot Off. The Surface 3 is supposed to run full real windows and I am trying to put a Windows 8.1 image on that I have used on many different computers with no problems.
Just curious if anybody has come across this and found the solution.
