Hi folks, good morning!
I am facing an issue while creating a virtual machine to run Windows Server 2019. On the "Setup is starting" screen, I am always getting the error "Windows installation encountered an expected error. Verify that the installation sources are accessible and restart the installation. Error code: 0xC0000005"
I am aware that this is an access violation error. I have checked all the options below, all without success:
To make it more weird, I can create a Windows Server 2016 machine without any problem, so this seems to be specific to 2019. On the attached ZIP, you can find the screenshot of the error as well as the VM log.
Has anybody faced similar issue? This is really driving me crazy!!
For reference: I'm running Workstation Pro 16.1.2
Thanks in advance for the help on this!
This looks like you originally used the easy install feature ?
Delete existing directory and existing VM and start over.
Use a regular installl and do not use NVME-vmdks but LSI-SAS.
Do not assign the iso-file to sata0:1 but to sata0:0
Do not add USB-devices during initial install and disable Thinprint.
Assign more RAM than 2GB
If that fails again ß attach new vmware.log
