I am getting an error when trying to install Net Framework 3.5 feature on a virtual server 2016.  
I get the error "The request to add or remove features on the specified server failed.
Installation of one or more roles, role services, or features failed.
The referenced assembly could not be found.  Error 0x80073701"
I have tried to mount the server 2016 iso and selected the "specify an alternate path" and pointed to the mounted ISO sources\sxs folder and still get the same error.  I have also tried to point the alternate path to an extracted copy of the the ISO and still get the error.
Any suggestions at what else I might try would be appreciated.
