Image Capture Boot Image Fails with 0xc000000f

Today while trying to boot using “Image Capture Boot Image” created on Windows server 2012 R2 With Update I faced the following error:

446311

searching on Internet I’ve found this subject <http://wp.secretnest.info/archives/1474&gt; which state that this is a common issue when trying to add boot file from Windows Server 2012 R2 with Update (MSDN CD) or Windows 8.1 with Update (MSDN CD) on Windows Server 2012 R2  (w or w/o update).

a workaround was stated on Technet <https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/a164b948-1778-42bd-8d77-9cef1ca70866/image-capture-boot-image-fails-with-0xc000000f?for&gt;

the solution is to mount the capture.wim file using dism, do not make any changes, Unmount it with /commit switch. the detailed steps are:

  1. Log on to your WDS server and create an empty directory that you can mount the WIM in (I used C:\MountDir)
  2. Open a command line window with administrator privileges, you’ll run the two DISM commands here
  3. Mount the WIM file with the command dism /mount-wim /wimfile:<path-to-wim-file> /mountdir:<your-mount-dir-of-choice> /index:1
    where <path-to-wim-file> is RemoteInstall\Boot\<architecture>\Images\
  4. Unmount the WIM file, committing changes (even though you didn’t make any) with the command dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:<your-mount-dir-of-choice> /commit
  5. Now go and try to boot using the capture image again 🙂

Output from the successful fix at work would be something like:

C:\>dism /mount-wim /wimfile:C:\RemoteInstall\Boot\x64\Images\capture_x64.wim /mountdir:C:\MountDir /index:1
