is this a new hardware platform that you are deploying to? it seems like the boot image either contains a bad driver, or is missing a required one.

looking here, is it possible that you have an x64 driver loaded into an x86 image or vice versa?

Looks like you loaded a 64 bit driver in your 32 bit image or vice versa.  BTW that's the driver for your TPM chip.

Is your tpm chip x86 or x64?  You probably need to update the tpm chip.

Here is what this bugcheck means:

The specified image file did not have the correct format; it appears to be a 64-bit Windows image.

So it seems that you added an x64 driver to an x86 image.
If you don't need that driver (or the TPM chip) for the Win PE phase, just remove it from the image!
