Beatunes (v5.15) isn't reporting any missing cover art on inspection on the same files on the old PC.
The inspection in beaTunes reports tracks that iTunes has artwork for, but that isn't embedded in the files. I.e. if iTunes does not have an artwork for the tracks, the "Artwork not embedded" inspector is not reporting any issues.
Did your old machine ever show cover art for those 5% of tracks?
My old machine shows cover art for all tracks, including the problematic 5%. I was wondering if the problem was iTunes on the new machine, but I don't think so. The cover art shows correctly for the 95% in VLC and Windows Media Player, but for the "5%" is missing in those apps. Same thing in the Windows 10 preview pane.
However, on the old machine the cover art displays correctly in all the apps I've tried, and the Windows 10 preview pane. So on the old machine apps are finding the art in some fashion.
