Windows Embedded 8 Standard IBW hangs when installing into vmware RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to install Windows Embedded 8 Standard, using the IBW disk, into a new vmware player virtual machine, the install progress stops at around 50% of the "installing Windows" progress bar, during the "Installing Features and Updates" step.

    I select the template "Thin client".

    The setuperr.log is empty. The cbs_unattend.log ends with:

    2013-11-08 08:39:47, Info                  DISM   Embedded Manager: PID=2212 TID=2232 Successfully installed Package "D:\Catalog\6.2\9200.16384\amd64\modules\Hotfix\Package_for_KB2798804~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.2.3.0.cab" - ModuleInstaller::InstallModules
    2013-11-08 08:39:47, Info                  DISM   DISM Package Manager: PID=2212 TID=2232 CBS session options=0x0! - CDISMPackageManager::Internal_Finalize
    2013-11-08 08:40:44, Info                  DISM   DISM Package Manager: PID=2212 TID=2260  Error in operation: the package is not applicable. (CBS HRESULT=0x800f081e) - CCbsConUIHandler::Error
    2013-11-08 08:40:44, Info                  DISM   DISM Package Manager: PID=2212 TID=2260  Error in operation: the package is not applicable. (CBS HRESULT=0x800f081e) - CCbsConUIHandler::Error
    And the last line is repeated a few times. The longer I let it sit, the more times the last line repeats.

    I've tried with both the x86 and x64 versions of IBW. I downloaded the IBW ISOs from MSDN. I've confirmed the SHA1 of the ISOs.

    I tried creating a new IBW with full catalog in ICE, after accepting all the WEDU updates. Still no joy.

    I'm running vmware player 5, the host is a Dell M4700 (i7 cpu) running Windows 7 Enterprise.

    I had no problem installing Windows Embedded 7 Standard and Windows Embedded XP into a vmware machine before.

    Any help will be appreciated.

  • Answering my own question:

    I was too "impatient". I let it hang for 30 minutes, and then it moved on and finished.
