    Windows 8.1 as VM guest error

    Hello all, Iím using VMís to test and build my new images. I cannot get windows 8.1 x86 to install in a VM.
    The install appears to succeed but then I get an error saying the computer tried to boot multiple times with error code 0xc0000001
    My VM host is 2012 r2 I can create a gen 2 VM that will install w81 x64, and I have a gen 1 VM that will install both w7 x86 and x64.
    Iíve also tried on VMware esx 5 and received the same error.
    The images is good because I tested it on a physical machine and it worked just fine.
    My preferred vm environment is hyper-v, any suggestions for getting the w81x86 images to deploy to a VM?
    Thanks,

    You can definitely use Virtualbox as a host (that's how I do my images).

    Just to be clear, you installed Windows 8.1 (x86) in a Gen 1. VM, sysprep'd/captured the image and then received a 0xc0000001 error after the image was deployed to the same VM?

    No, I did not sys prep and capture and no I did not get it to install in a gen 1 VM via MDT.
    This is just the source files imported as an image to do a base install.

    Iíve done a bit more testing and here are the results
    Gen 1 VM has ISO as install media will install a clean version of w81x86
    Gen 1 VM PXE booted via MDT installs windows but will not fully boot I get this error see attached.

    I mounted the same ISO and imported the source files into MDT again, and created a new task sequence. No modifications to the task sequence, just added the admin password, and the org name was already populated.
    This gave the same error, but what settings to check.
    On one hand the VM is just fine because it will install windows from ISO
    On the other hand MDT is just fine because it will install w81x86 on a physical machine just fine.

    Thanks,

    I just thought I post an update to this thread. It is all moot now. I finally got SCCM OSD working and I was able to deploy the image to the gen 1 VM with no issues.

    I just want to update everyone on this.
    I never did figure out the MDT issue, but I’ve got OSD working with SCCM now, and it images the hyper-v VM.
    I now have a place to test my images.

    Thanks
