Hi!

I'm trying to set up a WDS (Windows Deployment Services) on my Windows 2008 server. I have a Windows7 DVD that i am trying to get my WIM files from. I added the install image without complications. But when trying to add a boot image i got this error: "Data error (cyclic redundancy check). I have tried to restart the server and add it again. but same error. Any suggestions/help ?

Much appreciated!

do you get the error when copying the image from the DVD ? that would suggest an issue with the DVD or the DVDrom on the server ? can you try an alternative DVD ? or try the DVD in another machine to check for any media issues ?

Still not working. The DVD is fine. As i mentioned i did manage to add the install image from the same DVD. so i dont think its a problem with the DVD itself. Any other suggestions?

if you are getting CRC errors my bet would still be DVD or DVDrom - have other DVD's been fine in the server?

try copying the image onto the server from another machine and then add to WDS that way ? should isolate the server hardware ?
