If your looking to put Windows 10 IoT on your HP thin clients, here are my tips on doing that.

I picked up some used HP T620 thin clients that had WES7 on them and I wanted to bump them to Win10 after it was released.  The ones that I'm using have a 16GB mSATA SSD drives and 4GB of memory.  I had to wait awhile for HP to get the 10 image out, but now you can install the HP Recovery Image Download Tool (ThinUpdate) 64-bit and that will help you build a USB stick with the Win10 IoT installer on it.

SCVMM 2012 R2: There are currently no network adapters with network optimization available on host xxxx

Every time I stand up a new Hyper-V server I run into this message:
There are currently no network adapters with network optimization available on host xxxx.
Here are some of the things that I do to fix it.

Install the latest drivers from the Manufacturer's support site.  OpenManage from Dell didn't install the latest Broadcom drivers for some reason and I still had to download and install them. Check the Version and driver date on the driver after to make sure it actually updated. In March 2015, Broadcom published driver version 17.0 for download that fixes problems with VMQ.
Apply latest BIOS and firmware updates to all host components. Set the Management network to the top of the binding order. Configure SMB live migration if bandwidth is greater than 10gbps.

Check your driver settings.  You want to make sure that the drivers for the NIC that will be used for Live Migration have been optimized for that.
