While trying to load a computer into WinPE10 it hangs at the Windows splash screen.
GSS 3.x using WinPE10
We've seen this with older Dell Optiplex machines so far but this may apply to many older machines.
This issue is caused by a HAL issue. Drivers or a piece of hardware that isn't compatible with the drivers are trying to load.
When using WinPE10 on older systems, say 3 to 8 years old it is better to use an older version of WinPE. Try downloading WinPE5.x or WinPE4 and build a boot option using one of them. Greater success is seen with older machines.
