Error installing virtual machine with Server 2019

I am in the process of setting up a Lenovo ST550 server.  I am using the Lenovo ROK version of Server 2019.
The installation up to getting HyperV functioning has gone well.

When I create a virtual machine, I get to the install operating system and all goes well until it gets to the features install portion,  I get the following error:
"windows cannot copy files from D:\sources to C:$Windows.~LS\Sources.  Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation.  error code 0x80070001"

I have tried with the Windows trial version of Server 2019, and it works fine.  My problem using it was that it would not accept the licence key that came with the Server 2019 from Lenovo.

The ISO file that I am using [from Lenovo] is installed on a USB drive that is formatted NTFS.  The boot .wim is 531,550 kb. while the one from the trial version is 534,731 kb
