Error c0000221 installing Windows 8 Developer Preview

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to install Windows 8 Developer Preview on an old laptop with some proprietary motherboard drivers. The installation fails with error c0000221.

    Looking at the log files I found out that boot.wim cannot be applied successfully.

    Is there any way to point the installer at the location where my drivers are stored? Or any other way to include the drivers into the setup process?

    Here is some output from the setupact.log file:

    The error measn the file is not readable. So check the SHA1 hash and redownland the ISO if the values differ.

  • omg! I never thought vhd's can get in corrupted state.

    I just tried it on a Lenovo machine a had the same error there, so I re-downloaded the ISO again and now I am in the middle of the setup already.

    I will try on my legacy machine later.

     

    Thank you!

  • Hi,

    How did you prepare the installation Media? DVD or USB?
    There is a way to inject drivers into the install.wim file or boot.wim file but I am not sure enough that's the reason you cannot install it.

    Regards,

  • Hi Sergio,

    I tried to installed it by mounting the ISO file, and also from DVD drive.

    The error is the same in both ways.

    What should I do in order to fix it?
