windows setup failed to open distribution share d:\ds when trying to run the windows embedded standard 7 image builder wizard
Thursday, September 13, 2012 5:55 AM
The wizard fails with: windows setup failed to open distribution share d:\ds (..etc)
I am running it from a USB disk that has over 4GB free space, all the other files and folders are shown in the DS folder ok
Please advise what i should do here?
Does the drive need to be a certain format? its FAT32 at the moment (not NTFS, so no security)
I have tried copying the contents of the wes7-ibw iso to another USB drive and the same thing happens.

The system might be confused on the drive lettering. NTFS must be used for the IBW disk. Are there other drives in the system?
