Hello again,

If you get them to build it - there's no special consideration they need to
take in regards to building it, however quite possibly they will be unable
to fully verify it unless you buy an MS license tho, as their skillsets
will largely be "it booted windows so it's all good".

Some places might use some third party system burn-in tool to check. YMMV
