I am looking for a setup in a cubicle rental office

Clients rent out a cubicle on a per month base and get a computer with some applications included in the monthly payments.
I am Looking for a quick and efficient way to quickly get a machine running for the costumer, and when the customer leaves get the machine bake to a clean installation (with the applications) ready for the next costumer. And with as low of investment possible.

I was thinking of the following, but not sure if it’s available and recommended.

Have a cheap server just for AD DNS and GPO [deployment rule]. Then create a hyper v machine template configured the way it should be delivered to the costumer. When renting out a cubicle deploy a Virtual Machine from a Template on the server to the desktop at the costumer’s desk (window 10 support hyper v), and when the customer leaves bring down the vm and deploy a new one.

The other option would be doing an image, but is no more recommended by Microsoft and thy recommend using configuration service provider

Terminal server or having the vm on the server would require a expensive server security liability, and no down time on the server.
