Unable to Enable GUI on Core Server


  • Hi,

    i failed on the Task to enable the GUI on a Core Server with following steps, maybe somebody has some tips whats wrong. The Server has no Internet Access

    My Steps:

    - using the install.wim File from the ISO

    - mounting the WIM File with Index 4 to a dir

    - executing "Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:ServerCore-FullServer /featurename:Server-Gui-Shell /featurename:Server-Gui-Mgmt /all /Source:c:\inst\mount\windows\winsxs /limitaccess"

    I am getting Error

    Enabling feature(s)
    [===========================66.7%======                    ]

    Error: 0x800f081f

    The source files could not be found.

    Last Information: the Server already has around 20 Security Patches, could that be a Problem ?
