Looks to be a ram drive which is not helpful for installing, look it over and there's no install.wim copied to it.

After several unsucessful attempt's I finaly pointed it to the correct drive for the dvd F: and it installed.

the 'X:\' drive is the designation used by WinPE 2.0, and can be used by the WinPE portion of setup in Vista, to designate the Ram drive in memory.
