  1. We created a XE4 MDT image with MDT8456 tool. Its wim file was generated by sysprep from this XE4 PC. Its OS is Win 10 IoT enterprise LTSC 21H2. This MDT image is good for Dell XE3 PC, but cannot be deployed to Dell XE4 PC, which is very strange (see attached two pictures)
  2. When creating this XE4 MDT image in ISO file format (Offline version), it can be deployed successfully to Dell XE4 PC
    We would like to deploy this XE4 MED image through PXE (WDS) server. Please help us to solve our current issues.
