Experts I am trying to create a boot disk on a 16GB USB flash drive.  I am following these instructions  I have UEFI drive (6 TB) and I am trying to install Server 2016 onto a partition.  I kept getting an error with the 2016 disk so I am trying to create a USB boot disk.  

I am following the GPT part of the instructions on the site.  Everything is fine but each and every time I go to do xcopy e:\* m:\ /H /F /E I get an error "File creation error - The parameter is incorrect.  It has only copied 722 MB when it bombs out.  I am not sure why this is the case, any ideas out there?
