Trouble Booting to an AIK

Alright, so I am trying to boot to a Windows AIK build on a Latitude 10 ST2. I have successfully booted to an old vista based AIK but the software I need to use in the PE will not work; I need to boot to a Windows 8+ based environment. So I have built the AIK bootable (Windows 8.0 Based) drive using the media creation tool in the software and then tried to boot. The black screen with the white bars goes across and I get: 0xc000035a cannot find c:\windows\system32\drivers\bfad.sys.

I have mounted the boot.wim image and verified that this file is indeed on the image but it says it cannot find it every time I try and no matter what I try. Is there something I am missing? This drive seems to work on all other machines. Thank you!

Edit: Also, I have injected the specific machine drivers into the wim file using the dism tool.

Thanks for the reply! I have disabled some items in the BIOS but it still did not work. I know that particular device is not installed because booting to Windows and going to device manager: that device is nowhere to be found (even in advanced mode). That's what made the situation strange to begin with.

All that being said, I was finally able to reach the software developer regarding this and they had me try a few things, I think it was a bug in their software for some reason because the latest version of their software seems to have done the trick in creating a PE drive that works.
