Set path and Download

$cloudbaseInitZipPath = Join-Path $pwd Start-BitsTransfer -Source "" ` -Destination $cloudbaseInitZipPath

Install Cloudbase-Init and prepare the image for OpenStack:

$vhdxPath = "C:\VHDs\Nano.vhdx"

.\CloudbaseInitOfflineSetup.ps1 -VhdPath $vhdxPath -CloudbaseInitZipPath $cloudbaseInitZipPath

I get PS C:\cloudbase-init-offline-install> .\CloudbaseInitOfflineSetup.ps1 -VhdPath $vhdxPath -CloudbaseInitZipPath $cloudbaseInitZipPath C:\cloudbase-init-offline-install\CloudbaseInitOfflineSetup.ps1 : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'VhdPath'. At line:1 char:33 + .\CloudbaseInitOfflineSetup.ps1 -VhdPath $vhdxPath -CloudbaseInitZipP ... + ~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [CloudbaseInitOfflineSetup.ps1], ParameterBindingException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NamedParameterNotFound,CloudbaseInitOfflineSetup.ps1

Paths are correct and tested...

The tutorial you have followed is outdated, as Nano Server is part of the Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview, and since then two newer versions TP4/TP5 appeared. Please follow the instructions from Github.
