Windows 8.1 not installing through MDT RRS feed

  • Question

  • I apologize in advance as this is my first time working with this so I am a bit lost. I am creating a virtual environment to practice sccm in and cannot seem to get one of the vms to work with windows 8.1. I select the correct media and get an error that states

    "operating system deployment did not complete successfully."

    Failure (5640): False: verify file E:\deploy\operating sytems\w81x64\sources\install.wim

    Using notepad's open menu I was able to see that the install.wim file that is in the source location (c: on the physical server) is somehow not showing on the virtual machine during install. Instead there is an install.esd file. 

    Has anyone seen this issue? I can provide the bbg.log logs if that will help.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Please make certain you are using a full Win 8.1 OS media and not a Win 8.1 upgrade OS media.  the .esd file suggests this is upgrade media and not full OS media.
