Trouble Booting to an AIK

Last Modified: 2016-02-10
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.
