I have sysprepped my Win 10 install (generalize, audit, shutdown)

Now the computer is shutdown.  Are my next steps the following:

1) boot to Acronis Win 10 PE bootable recovery media (CD)
2) clone image to USB drive?

If you dont want Acronis to be on each system you deploy then yes, boot the system from Recovery media and create the golden image. This can be later deployed to other machines.

I second both experts above. One thing I wanted to add is that you need to use Windows VL media for installation on the golden image machine.

Check this post where the imaging rights are being described in details.
