    If the ADK version installed on the site server and/or site system hosting the SMS Provider role does not match the version of WinPE in the boot image, then you will not be able to modify certain things about the boot images from the ConfigMgr console. This includes drivers and the options on the Customization tab.

    Assuming this is an older boot image, you need to upgrade it which can fairly easily be done in ConfigMgr: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/osd/get-started/manage-boot-images#update-distribution-points-with-the-boot-image

    Hi, @Boopathi Subramaniam
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Like Jason said, this happens because SCCM compares the version of the installed ADK to the version of the boot image, and if these do not match, the tabs to modify the boot image will be hidden.

    So we can update distribution points of the boot image with the option to "Reload this boot image with the current Windows PE version from the Windows ADK".

    If we upgrade the ADK version before the SCCM upgrade, the boot image version will be upgraded during the SCCM upgrade.
    And a little suggestion, when we upgrade the ADK version, it's better to restart the server after remove the old ADK, then install the new version of ADK.
