Try to installing SBS 2011 and the error message with wim.xml

Hi,

 

Could someone help me to solve this problem

I try to install SBS 2011 into HP ProLiant ML350 G6, but it comes up with the following message

"The wim.xml file was not generated correctly.  This may have resulted from a failed file copy of install.wim"

 

How could I go and fix this problem?

 

Regards,

Harry

Hello!

Are you using the smartstart to install?

Maybe your installation media has some issues?

Hi Johan,

 

Thanks for your response.

Yes, I am using the smartstart to install.

First I download the software and then bunt into a dual DVD; I think the media might be corrupted.

I will download it again and try some other things until everything’s exhausted then I will seek advice and in the mean time thanks for your suggestion.

I am also having this problem. I am attempting to install Windows server 2008 R2 x64 on a DL380 G7 I am using Smartstart 8.70. The installation gets to 99% after inserting the Windows disc and then this message appears. I have tried different Smartstart disc and different Windows disc. Tomorrow I will install windows without smartstart.
