WDS 2008 R2 Deploy Windows 8.1 (Image corrupt)

I have this setup:

Windows 2008 R2 with latest updates
WDS role installed
Working Deployment solution with Windows 7 64 bit

Now i try to add the windows 8.1 boot image and windows 8.1 install image (the wim files)

I recieve this error:
The specified image file is either invalid or corrupt.

i tried another disk of windows 8. same problem. I also installed manually a system with this disk without a problem.

Any suggestions anyone?

I have a solution found.

I ordered a new disk. put it in a different server created a new ISO file and attached it through hyper-v to the WDS server. This works flawless.

The problem was a defective CD-ROM drive in the fysical server which damaged the DVD Disk.
