Installing Windows Server 2016 on Vmware Workstation 14.1.3

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?

In addition to the above, make sure VD-T virtualization has been set in BIOS. You need to do this for 64-bit guests and the setting may need to be changed.

Hi,

Thanks I will try those suggestions. Just another question does it need to BIOS or UEFI.

I have tried BIOS and it cant find the Media Driver driver is missing.


Thanks,

What is your host machine?  It should be UEFI by now, but BIOS should work.

I have tried BIOS and it cant find the Media Driver is missing..    <-- Turn the machine OFF, start in BIOS (even if UEFI) and check the virtualization setting. This should not have anything to do a Media Driver.

Please let us know what host operating system you are using.

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.
