EADR 10.40 for Server 2016 - WINPE file missing at iso


I need to restore a Windows Server 2016. So i start the EADR task.
When creating the Recovery Set (iso) with the WAIK (Version 1703 ) the WINPE file is missing in the iso. Therefore the ISO does not start if it is mounted on a server.
The following packages are installed on the Server (WAIK Version 1703):
+Deployment tool
+Windows PE Environment
When i start a EADR for a 2012R2 Server the WINPE.DRB file is on the iso and the restore can be done successful

Try to use the most recent version of the Windows ADK: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/get-started/adk-install

You have version 1703, there is 1903. 

According to that document the Windows Preinstallation Environment (PE) is released separately from the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) so remember to download it too.
