I just created a MS Server 2016 qcow2 image on Windows 8.1 with the cloudbase imaging tools.

When i try to start a new instance in Openstack i get 0xc00000001 error on startup.

I use Virtio version 1.133-2 with these parameters:

New-WindowsOnlineImage -WimFilePath $wimFilePath -ImageName $image.ImageName -WindowsImagePath $windowsImagePath -Type 'KVM' -ExtraFeatures @() -SizeBytes 20GB -CpuCores 4 -Memory 2GB -SwitchName $switchName -ProductKey $productKey -DiskLayout 'BIOS' -VirtioISOPath $virtIOISOPath -InstallUpdates:$false -AdministratorPassword 'Password' ` -PurgeUpdates:$false -DisableSwap:$true

On image creation I have several errors:

BFSVC: SetNamedSecurityInfo failed! Error code = 0x2 BFSVC: SetNamedSecurityInfo failed! Error code = 0x2 BFSVC: SetNamedSecurityInfo failed! Error code = 0x2 BFSVC: SetNamedSecurityInfo failed! Error code = 0x2

WARNING: BCDEdit failed: bootmgr device locate WARNING: BCDEdit failed: default device locate WARNING: BCDEdit failed: default osdevice locate Adding drivers from H: Adding drivers from "H:\WIN8\AMD64" to image "G:\"

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool Version: 6.3.9600.17031

Error: 50

To service this Windows image requires the latest version of the DISM. See to find the latest version of DISM,

I tried to start the downloadable MS Server 2012 R2 eval from cloudbase, and it's works. I followed the creation steps from there.

Can you install the latest Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) and try again? From the error message, you are trying to create an image with a newer Windows version than your host and that can cause the problems with dism tool not being able to install the drivers.

I suggest you to have the host Windows version (where you generate the image) >= Windows image version that you generate.

Thank you,

I can't find a way to install newer DISM version to 8.1, I will try to create the image on a Hyper-V virtualized MS Server 2016. I'll back soon with the results. If it won't work I can try it with win 10 at the evening. Thank you, Raffai Zoltán

I tried it with windows 10 and the DISM error messages are gone and the drivers are installed, however i still get these errors : \GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume15\Boot BFSVC: SetNamedSecurityInfo failed! Error code = 0x2

BFSVC: Unable to open file \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume15\Boot\cs-CZ\bootmgr.exe.mui for read because the file o r path does not exist

Is the image generation stopping because of those errors? Thanks.

No, but neither with previous errors. I can try the new images(which i did with win10) tomorrow, but these left-over errors confuse me. Is it possible that these boot bootmgr.exe.mui files are not necessary? I tried it with two different ISO now, but the results are same.
