Microserver Gen8 unattended Installation fails at disk partitioning

Hello all

I try to configure an unattended installation of Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 on HP MicroServer Gen8.

I created an unattendend.xml and it works... but only with one partition, as soon as i add more partition it fails.

Maybe someone of you can help me...

here my disk configuration:

<DiskConfiguration>
                <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
                <Disk wcm:action="add">
                    <CreatePartitions>
                        <CreatePartition wcm:action="add">
                            <Order>1</Order>
                            <Size>350</Size>
