  • Didn't work Don & Chris:

    PS C:\> Mount-WindowsImage -ImagePath d:\sources\install.wim -Path C:\mountdir –Index 2 -readonly Install-WindowsFeature
     Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra, Server-Gui-Shell –Restart –Source c:\mountdir\windows\winsxs
    Mount-WindowsImage : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'Install-WindowsFeature'.

    It looks like you've combined the two instructions into a single commandline, which caused this failure

    Try it this way:

    PS C:\> Mount-WindowsImage -ImagePath d:\sources\install.wim -Path C:\mountdir –Index 2 -readonly

    PS C:\> Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra, Server-Gui-Shell –Restart –Source c:\mountdir\windows\winsxs

  • Check your media then, it must be corrupted.  I used the command just last night on a fresh install of Server Core without issue.

    Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra,Server-Gui-Shell –Restart -Source:wim:d:\sources\install.wim:1

  • Hello,

    It appears that the installer is trying to download from the Internet. Make sure that the computer has Internet access and that DNS can rsolve. Alternatively, use the /LimitAccess switch to prevent the installation from downloading the files from the Internet.

All replies

  • So basically what the message is saying is that it needs source.  When you install right from the disc Server Core all the GUI components are missing so you need the source files to go to GUI.  If you started off with GUI and then went to core and decided you wanted to go back to GUI again your commands would work without specifying the source for the files.

    Once you determine the index of your install.wim for Server with a GUI (doesn't have CORE after its name, in your example index 2 or 4) then you can run the command below:

    Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra, Server-Gui-Shell –Restart –Source wim:D:\sources\install.wim:2

    Just customize the Source to the path and the ":2" at the end for the index number.

    Syntax is incorrect. After the -Source switch, it's expecting the source location and instead it's getting the /limite access. Try this:

    Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra,Server-Gui-Shell /LimitAccess –Restart -Source wim:d:\sources\install.wim:2
