Windows Deployment Services Add Image Wizard error

Recommended Posts

If you are using a virtual pc environment (eg Microsoft Virtual PC 2007) and try to add an install image in WDS you may see the following error




Verify if you have mounted the ISO (the Vista Installation DVD) in daemon tools, if so this may be the cause of your problem.


Workaround 1. To resolve this error, simply copy the Install.wim file stored in your sources folder on the DVD (or mounted ISO) to a local directory on your virtual pc and retry the WDS add new image wizard and this time substitute the local path for the install.wim file in the wizard instead of the mounted ISO path.


Workaround 2. Unmount the ISO in Daemon tolls, and then mount the iso in Microsoft Virtual PC directly by clicking on CD, then Capture ISO image


This appears to be something to do with the way Microsoft queries cdrom.sys (in relation to Daemon tools at least....).
