Volume Shadow Copy Service error when trying to restore pc using system image

We have numerous Windows 10 Pro Acer Switch 2 tablets that we have to prep for a customer and wish to image one and apply to the rest. Prepping includes installing latest build of Windows 10 pro, removing bloatware, and installing office, and any remaining windows updates. I have one machine prepped to "backup", and have done so using system image (windows 7 restore).
When i go to apply this image to another tablet (boot to windows 10 usb drive, repair pc, troubleshoot, system image restore)
select the image off of my external hdd, and get the following error immediately after starting the restore:

Re-image your computer

The system image restore failed.

Error details: A Volume Shadow Copy Service component encountered an unexpected error. Check the Application event log for more information. (0x80042302).

Any idea what could be causing this?

Buy Acronis Snap Deploy licences (they are very cheap) and you can create the master image and deploy with standalone bootable USB. Very easy, very intuitive. Universal Restore feature is integrated (restoring to different hardware). Restore will reset all SID numbers on first boot. Image creation and deploy time is less than 15 min.

Have you tried to look for the service in services and what is its state ?

Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider".

Should be Automatic and Started.

It's a known bug in v1709 of win 10. Restore works only to the same drive, not to unpartitioned drives. Ms is ruining their own functions by updating them once more.

I can add a link to a trchnet thread of mine for confirmation, later.

You do run v1709, right?

Thank you for the article! We ended up prepping the machines and imaging them before we updated Windows 10, allowing success because its on an earlier build. Glad to know the issue was not just me.
