If you are having trouble getting Windows to boot after restoring, you can try switching between Legacy and EFI boot in Winclone. EFI boot is using on recent hardware and recent versions of Windows. Winclone detects the versions on restore. Switching manually may result in Windows booting if there were issues booting before. To switch between Legacy and EFI bootable mode, select your Windows volume under sources. While holding option key, select Make EFI Bootable… and follow the instructions. Try to boot into Windows and if that does not work, switch to Legacy mode using the same procedure.
Does using the winclone_helper_tool -w command works the same as going through the GUI? We have hundreds of computers. It’s dreadful to think we have to do that procedure for every computer.
the -w flag is used when restoring to force copying the boot files to the EFI partition, but does not set to be EFI bootable. That is usually handled by the postinstall script for mass deployment. How are you currently deploying? Package deployment might be helpful here:

What “instructions” are we supposed to follow. Below the “destinations” window it says “Coming EFI Boot Files” for about a second and then it stops.
I think this article is the one that documents it:
