Windows 8 Deployment issue

    General discussion

  • We are running a WDS server that I just recently uploaded a Windows 8 64bit image to.  When I try to deploy the image to the same computer, after Expanding Windows files and going to Installing features, I get a "Windows Installation encountered an unexpected error. Verify that the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation.  Error Code: 0xC0000005."

    We have been deploying Windows 7 64bit Ent successfully from the same WDS server.  The laptop was a clean install of Windows 8 with our standard office applications installed and was running just fine on the laptop.  I did the generalize option on the OOBE sysprep and did a capture to the local hard drive which was then copied to the WDS server.

    Any help is appreciated.
