Windows 8 Installation Error using WDS

    Windows 8 Installation Error using WDS

    I have been attempting to install Windows 8 using WDS for the past two hours.

    Every time I install it using WDS, I get the following errors in the attached picture. If I burn that same ISO image to a disc, everything works fine.

    I have tried two different versions of the iso image (en-US and en-GB), verified that the hashes are correct, tried VMs and a physical machine, tried with and without an unattend.xml file.

    Every time I run into that error (xC0000005). I was given some explanations on what would cause that error, the first being bad ram, the second being a bad hard drive. Well, I don't think that that is the case in this scenario unless all of my VMs, and computers are going bad.

    I would really appreciate the help, has anyone had success when attempting to use WDS for installing Windows 8?

    Best to burn the ISO to DVD, & clean install.

    Um, that really isn't the issue. Burning to a DVD works fine, as I mentioned. But if I use that same ISO in WDS it fails, and WDS would be quite a bit easier to deploy to computers then having to put a DVD in the drive for every laptop.
