    Remember you have a 32GB drive and your system uses Wimboot images.. It is rather simple to swap out the OS by swapping out the wim files..
    step 1) Go into control panel > recovery > create a recovery drive
    step 2) make a "drivers" folder on C = C:\drivers
    step 3) run this cmd> Dism /online /Export-Driver /Destination:c:\Drivers
    copy or save that drivers folder to a usb

    then we will prep the new OS install.wim by adding the product key, system drivers, features and
    then we swap out our images with the ones on the recovery usb - do a reset and you have a new OS

    look inside the "SOURCES" folder on your setup media do you have an install.wim or install.esd ??

    sorry it took so long, wife was in hospital..

    Insert your setup media in your drive..
    download and extract Imageprep.zip (creates an imageprep folder)
    copy the "Drivers" folder you created before into the "imageprep" folder
    right-click imageprep.cmd - run as administrator

    It will ask for the drive letter to your setup media >
    it will ask you for a folder name > wintel
    it will ask for the product key > type in the product key you wish to activate with dashes

    it will then copy the setup media's install.wim to the folder within the images folder
    it will mount the install.wim and ask if you want to add the drivers into the image > YES
    it will inject the product key into the windows image and add Net3 into the image > it will then finalize the new install.wim

    it will then ask if you want to add the drivers to the "Boot.Wim" > YES (This is required if you have "touch")
    It will finalize the boot.wim and will ask if you would like to prepare images for wimboot > YES
    the program will then complete

    Now inside the images folder you will find the "wintel" folder you created. it will have the New "Boot.wim" and the New Install.wim (install-wimboot.wim) I just added the wimboot to id the new install.wim (rename to install.wim)

    Inside the Recovery media you created before _ there is a "sources" folder, inside that folder you will find an install.wim, boot.wim (hidden) and maybe a custom.wim > rename all three to a .factory extenstion (example: install.wim.factory)

    copy the NEW boot.wim and install.wim into the recovery media "sources" folder

    Boot from the recovery media and select "Reset" > this will apply the new OS image with the included drivers and product key to the hard drive
