Thanks for contacting Intel rJ@logicnow,
I am very familiar with SCCM and other system management tools. I am curious if you have tried loading a bare copy of windows onto this system? I am wondering if the issue is related solely to the WinPE environment or if it is a driver/hardware issue and would just like to narrow it down a little bit. Have you tried using the generic Windows networking drivers instead of the Intel Specific drivers? I ask because I know in the past my own WinPE images ran into problems with a variety of hardware and the official drivers not loading correctly.
As well, how many units do you have of this model? I am curious if this is happening on a single unit or several units?
I look forward to your feedback.

Thanks for the reply.We have successfully loaded the drivers onto a Windows OS. And have successfully installed all of the other drivers once an OS is installed. We have even verified this with a second NUC5i7RYH, to rule out other issues. The issue only persists in the WinPE environment. We are also having a hard time getting the required device drivers separated from their .exe installers to be used during the SCCM reimaging process.
The only drivers that I could get to work were the I218-V drivers. Once I loaded those into the Boot image, the Task Sequence was able to load correctly. If you haven't seen the following link, it was clutch in solving this issue.
Now I'm on to pulling the device drivers for all of the other components. Hope this helps others!
