it seems to me that I've made a mistake in creating Windows 10 1511 golden image for Surface Pro 4 and other HP workstations.

Here's the process that I've gone through:

1. Run the Surface Pro 4 and then update it to the latest using the Windows Update.
2. When all update has been installed, I checked the version is Windows 10 Professional 10.10586.164
3. I've mounted SW_DVD5_WIN_ENT_10_1511_64BIT_English_MLF_X20-82288.ISO file and then perform the upgrade to  Windows 10 Professional 10.10586.164 succesfully.
4. when everything is set, I'm creating the MDT golden image by using the Sysprep (Generalize).

Does this method is the correct way to create the Windows 10 for mass deployment ? Because the SFC scannow command result always shows as corrupted in those workstations I've deployed.

So far in March 2016, I have deployed to about 18 Surface Tablets and 7 laptop so far using the above method, now I wonder if it is the correct way of doing it or not ?
