RE: Dell E7240 deployment from SCCM 2012 failed

We just got our E7240s in today. I loaded up the drivers and attempted to image one with our working Windows 8.1 UEFI-supported image, but it fails immediately after applying the operating system.

 

smsts.log shows the same general error message 80004005.  Unable to find the partition that contains the OS boot loaders. 

 

Is there any special way to format the partitions?  The task sequence supports and uses UEFI partitioning, and works on our Surface Pro tablets, however we don't have the extra OEM and recovery partitions that seem to be loaded on the manufacturer image.  The only partitions I have right now are:

1) EFI 500MB FAT32

2) OS remaining (127GB) NTFS - C:\

 

are the other partitions (PBR Image, ESP, and WinREtools) required in order to boot the device?
