Trying to install this from a usb drive on a Server on the rack in the Server room and it's freezing at the Windows logo after the initial "Loading Files" screen.
I can confirm I get further on my local workstation when I try to do the same thing. Seems to be specific to the Server, which is an HP Server with 2x Intel Xeon CPU E5-2643 v4 @ 3.40GHz, 128GB of RAM, and 1.1TB disk space (6 Local Physical Drives, RAID 10 (assumed), split into 8 Logical Disks).
Any way to diagnose what's going on? I've used multiple usb keys, multiple boot usb key tools (Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool, and Rufus), and even re-downloaded the iso a couple times.
Running setup? Really?
How about just apply wim with dism?
