WinPE Initialization failed with error code 0x80220014

I came across this issue during a deployment for a customer:

Windows PE initialization failed with error code 0x80220014.

The fix is well documented here.

Essentially, the PE wims included in ADK 10 1511 require a fixed schema.dat file. So you have to mount the wims in DISM and replace the existing schema.dat files with the ones provided in the hotfix download.

Or you could update to ADK 10 1607.
