Imaging Dell Precision 5510 w/ M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD - BSOD Issues
I have one Dell Precision 5510 w/ a M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD that I need to deploy my Windows 7 build to. I've looked at other threads regarding issues with this machine, but haven't had much luck with applying the actual image. So far, I'm able to boot into my KBE w/ WINPE10 without any problems. The problem I'm running into is when the image is applied and the machine reboots for the first time post-driver feed installation. It consistently BSOD's and I'm wondering if I need to be using the "Create UEFI Partitions" and "Apply UEFI Partitions" tasks for pre and mid respectively.
Additionally, I'm wondering if I simply need to add this hotfix to my build: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2990941
I've injected the nvme.sys drivers into the feed to hopefully resolve the BSOD. But in addition to it blue screening post-image application, it also takes over an hour to copy the image from the server. I believe that this may have to do with the USB-C ethernet adapter.
If all else fails, I may just have them replace the machine with a 5510 w/ a SATA SSD instead of a M.2 PCIe to see if that fixes the post-image BSOD issues.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for all your answers. I thought I would just summarize my experience for anyone that searches for this in the future.
It looks like as long as you can get a KBE working with the machine (I used a KBE built using the WinPE 10 Cab, sans the problematic iaStorA.sys storage driver) it will work with Windows 10 builds using the default Win10x64 drivers in the feed. With Windows 7, as long as the hotfix is applied to your Windows 7 build, it'll work. Without the hotfix, Windows 7 x Dell Precision 5510 will result in a BSOD nearly every time.
If anyone has anything else to add, please let me know. But I think this seems to be the best way to get it working properly.
