Is the SATA virtual hard disk attached to port 0 of SATA?

Did you CLEAN the virtual hard disk of all partitions first?

SATA port 0

and clean in bootice with re-partition

 

but... the error is the same on a phisical PC a Dell vostro with UEFI and Win8.1

 

i think it's a problem with a bootice partitioning... maybe my error

Are these standard Win7/8 Install ISOs or special ones?

Do they require more than 100MB for the 1st partition?

If using UEFI it will make a GPT partitioned disk. Could you have mixed up the installs and not always deleted and CLEANed the disks?

Try DISKPART CLEAN before partitioning.

Try (just for experiment) 500MB first partition.

Try using DISKPART to create the partitions instead of BootIce?

 

i.e. (for example)

DISKPARTSEL DIS 0CLEANCRE PART PRI SIZE=xxxFORMAT FS=FAT32 LABEL="YYY" QUICKACTIVECRE PART PRI SEL PAR 2FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="ZZZ" QUICKASSIGN LETTER=CLIS VOLEXIT

Have you looked a the setup log files inside \Windows\Panther folder?

 

There should be a setupact.log and setuperr.log.

@JFX:

Thank you for reply.
Mystery is solved. My HDD's integrity is corrupted. Solution: 

chkdsk e: /x /f

did I spend many days this? I want to cry!  :blushing: 

Suggestion: Can be add to WinNTsetup that CheckDisk task after BCD settings finished.

 
******
 
Like I said, I always setup install.wim to my other hard drives. Therefore, I used to selet "mount drive installation as" and "drive letter preassigment". It's working. Thanks JFX!
 
On some modified (unattended) WIMs the Sysprep phase can't pass. Error messages:

"Windows could not complete the installation"
OR
"Windows Setup could not configure Windows on this computer's hardware"
OR
"The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered and unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed."

 

 

from the setup logs in \Panther:
[windeploy.exe] Found failed generalization state [6] --> system is in an invalid state
[windeploy.exe] Failure occured during online installation.  Online installation cannot complete at this 
time.; hr = 0x8030000c

 

 

 
Temporarily solution: SHIFT F10 -> \Windows\System32\oobe\msoobe.exe
 
But this time the setup cannot complete properly.
(_:\Windows\Setup\State\State.ini -> other messages expect "completed")
 
Where's the harm? Windows Update can't working. From WindowsUpdate.log:
Windows OOBE is still in progress. AU deferring detection
WARNING: BeginDetection failed, hr:0x8024a008
All AU searches complete.
# WARNING: Failed to find updates with error code 8024a008

 

 

 
JFX, why happening the issue? What is state failure to cause on sysprep phase? Obivously, the issue related any a setting in unattended WIM. I did spend many months but I can't detect why. 
 
******
 
My request:
 
Sometime, I only want mount and preassigment feature of WinNtSetup. Unfortunately, WNS always want to extract install.wim. Simply because it's keep waiting 15-20 minutes. How am I use mount and preassigment feature without extracting? My purpose: Apply mount and preassigment feature to existed Windows on my drive. 
 
WinNTsetup switch WIM extract method (to wimlib) if CTRL+SHIFT+W. (Thanks for wimlib support, too!) Likewise, "no extracting" can be implementing. if it's not too much trouble. Could you do it? I would love to.

Thank you for reading and your interesting.

Sorry have no idea about the "Windows could not complete the installation" error, I never experienced that one.

 

The Windows Update can't work in OOBE mode anymore, that's a change Microsoft made with Windows 8.1.

 

There is a "no extracting" feature using command line 

 



WinNTSetup_x64.exe NT6 -noapply -bcd:none


 

But mount and preassigment only work for your current disks,

as it saves the MBR signature and the partition offset.

Not so sure you want that in your wim.

Hi, JFX,

Is there any way to configure PPPoE connection in WinNTSetup sysprep. Because Windows 10 is looking for internet connection to finish setup. And without internet computer starts restart cycling.

Or any other solution for solving this problem.

Regards

P.S. I found teporary answer - Shipt+F10->inetcpl.cpl-> tab Connections->Setup button (setup Internet connection). But this isn't so elegant :)
