  • Hi,

    Maybe you use corrupted ISO and it's the most possible reason.

    Download again new iso, and use utility like windows usb tool to create usb bootable and install windows

    Looks like corrupted or incorrect way of doing it. Don't know which version you want to install, but make sure that:

    1. .iso image is not corrupt
    2. USB key formatted as NTFS (since e.g. install.wim might be >4GB, FAT32 has a max file size)
    3. The USB-key install partition is marked Active (using diskpart).

    That's actually all you need to do to make it work. (Windows 7/2008R2 and later)

  • Problem is your pendrive type is FAT32, so its file capacity maximum is under 4 gb 

    may be Install.wim  file is 4 gb  that why you facing this problem

    Try to convert your pendrive fat32 to ntfs

  • Changing the USB to NTFS does not fix this issue. I did this and still have the same error. I believe it is the size of the install.wim file and you have to split it into 2 files as it is over 4GB.  There are programs that do this, I believe I had to do this with Server 2012R2 as well. 

    UPDATE: I used DISM to split the file and then I used UltralISO to remove the install.wim file and inject the 2 files I created with dism. Recreated the ISO and then used that to create a bootable USB.

    This is now working
