    For most stock installations of Windows10, UEFI is set and so is "Secure Boot" enabled. Unless an admin bios password had already been applied, you can disable SecureBoot, reimage, and then re-enable once you're finished. This keeps those machines secure from those who might want to bypass security by booting their own media. Btw, once done, then is a good time to apply that bios admin pwd.
    We use Dell machines for Windows here on campus, and it is EASY to apply a script that does all the above, reboots, allows for reimaging, and then tidies up again at the end...without having to manually change settings in bios at all!

    Still very interested in seeing example(s) of such scripts. (Probably would not matter if geared towards a particular imaging program, as long as this could be adapted for another.)

    ============================

    Vanishing Folders | Win-10 Moves in Mysterious Ways:

    Update 20H2 trashed a few installed items here -- games most evidently -- shoving them into a folder section with the heading Windows_Old. Now, there is not trace of this folder anymore. Whatever got relocated there appears to be gone. (A good search utility failed to turn up anything, on keyword searches.) There is now just a folder entitled "Windows10Upgrade", that does not contain what I was looking for. Had I known this might happen, I would have backed up that Windows_Old section before it could disappear. Leaves you wondering what future Win Updates may zap. Best to keep a close watch on this possibility.

    [EDIT: in a couple cases, I was able to open install archives with a utility, extract and reinstate necessary files that must have gotten moved into the now vanished 'Windows_Old' section, as a workaround for restoring said programs. Reinstalling them from scratch might have worked as well, but I wanted to test out that method using the extractor.]
