Hi,

I am trying to install Windows Server 2016 on VMWare Workstation 14 and get the following error
when I begin the install about an error message \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD. Status: 0xc000000d

This is from a Trail ISO I downloaded from Microsoft.

Any suggestions on how to fix?

I have attached a screen shot.

Thanks,

Ward.

Hussain,

Thanks for your response. Can you clarify about changing the ISO? Re-Download - corruption?

Hi,

Hi,

Sorry I should of clarified this my Host is Windows 10 with a UEFI bios. The BIOS setting was asking about was in reference to the Guest Settings of the virtual machine.

I am going to check my host BIOS setting that you suggested.

Thanks,

Ward.
