    Unable to Import OS from DVD

    I am unable to import an OS into a fresh WDS/MDT installation. I have the Windows 7 with SP1 dvd in the drive. I can browse to the share from machines and see the operating systems folder. However I get the error shown below. If anyone can offer any pointers it would be a great help! Thanks

    I did give Vista a go with the same result.

    I have just deleted the Deployment Share and remade it, and this time it is now importing. Very strange although I was trying the make the deployment share at D:\MDT\DeploymentShare rather than just D:\DeploymentShare but I shouldn't have thought that this would affect it :/
