Did you capture the image to a .wim file?  Using WDS or MDT you should be able to deploy if captured successfully.

>>Just fixed this issue when attempting to WDS win10x64 Ent. to an Optiplex 780
Make sure you disable all the drivers in your drivers folder and load the x64 Architecture to the boot image. Do this by right clicking on the boot image and load drivers - search for drivers and click Next until it is complete. Restart the WDS service and try again. <<
