I have an experimental Windows Server 2008 R2 server setup as a hyper-v machine. I downloaded the Windows Server 2008 R2 setup ISO disk image file to a location on the hyperv machine. I opened the Hyper-V manager, created a new virtual machine, pointed it to the ISO image file, and started the new virutal machine inside the hyper-v machine. So exciting...It begins the normal setup but then fails with this error:
windows could not collect information for [osimage] since the specified image file [install.wim] does not exist
Gee, up to this point it couldn't get any easier. The error is exceedingly helpfup, but now I have no idea how to proceed. Has anyone seen this error in a similar scenario? All my Googling results seem to indicate that there is a corruption on the installation DVD, but I don't believe this image file is corrupt since it never hit a physical medium.
