Post Installation Tasks not working in Windows 10 Pro image

Recently we switched from Windows 10  Enterprise to Windows 10 Pro. I built a new image, and set everything up as I know how. However, it finishes pushing the image, then never performs auto reboots for post installation tasks. I am trying to deploy WiFi Profiles and connect the PCs to my domain, but it just never finishes running. Everything works, but I need to manually add them to the domain and add the WiFi profiles to each device. I am new to all of this and was thrown into it, with no formal training, so I am trying to learn on the fly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not as technical answer but I can speak from my experience a bit and it may or may not help you.

Through imaging many different Dell models, I have found that some of the models load things in different order (drivers mainly). This for me means that plugging in a device is essential for imaging. Imaging over wifi with some models just will not work, and using certain adapters also can effect this. If the device comes up and the network is not preset in that first pre-boot environment it will not catch the post task that are pending and will boot normally into the OS. 

Also, how are you pushing the image? Maybe the reboot/post installation tasks are missed for a different reason that has to do with the process you are using? Maybe start from the beginning. Product Support - KACE Systems Deployment Appliance (quest.com) is a great place for this and under the "getting started" tab may teach you something you didn't realize you were missing.
