    Use an external USB > HDD or SSD
    Create one 500mb partition (say E: ) and set as active
    Create a 50GB partition (say F: ) and then APPLY the windows install.wim to that partition (using DISM)

    then open a command prompt (Admin) and type
    bcdboot F:\Windows /s E: /f ALL

    you will now have a bootable UEFI and Legacy USB HDD or SSD containing windows
    boot to the USB Drive finish windows setup, add any needed drivers, install any needed programs

    or you can create VHD's and boot them from a single larger partition - instead of applying windows to the partition
    But it is basically the same thing, just takes longer to expand the VHD before boot. and the files size is basically the same...

    PS:
    Installing non-portable apps into WinPESE is a little more involved as there are registry entries, file dependencies' and files that are installed in different folder locations (win32, syswow, etc.)

    We usually monitor the changes in a HOST OS and then write a script to duplicate the setup in WinPE

    Thanks for your excellent recovery disk.

    Please see How to Fix a Non-Booting PC Remotely

    What tools on your recovery disk do you suggest I should try to run to fix the problem?

    I have a dell Inspiron laptop that came with Windows 10 Home pre-installed, last week I try to restore with a factory image I downloaded from dell using the factory tag but every single time after it goes through the whole process it fails at restart.

    trial and error has shown me that using the Dell Factory Image REQUIRES a CLEAN disk..
    Please post a pic(s) of the files from the downloaded image

    Look inside the downloaded image files - and see if you have an APPS.ppg in the "sources/customizations" folder

    I can't run any of the recovery media unless is on legacy or with secure boot off under UEFI, once the recovery install completes during the first restart it automatically changes the bios to UEFI secure boot only and my drives sometimes are seen and sometimes not depending on the format of the USB recovery MBR or UEFI, FAT32 or NTFS. I tried both with Rufus 2.17

    You can contact Dell support as to the issue of their recovery media not booting...

    What I would do at this point is >
    Download the Dell Drivers for your PC from Dell's website
    Boot to Microsoft's Windows 10 Installation Software
    Delete every current partition and install windows 10 to the unallocated free space
    Install the Dell Drivers for your PC, downloaded from Dell's website
    Then use Macrium Reflect and create a System Image to be used for Recovery.

    Windows 10 recovery will restore/reinstall ITSELF, but will not restore OEM drivers or additional programs..

    The Apps.ppg is a file that contained the Dell drivers and additional programs that came with your PC from the factory.
    And since the Recovery media you downloaded from Dell's website does not have an Apps.ppg > then it is pretty much worthless and your better off just doing a clean installation using MS Software and reinstalling the Dell Drivers.
