Windows Server 2016 Installation - Virtio SCSI drivers

Oct 24, 2019
Hi, I try install Windows Server 2016 on Dell Server (PowerEdge R7425) and installer show this window.


After select virtio driver from the iso mounted and press next I have this error:

Any idea?

Best regards and thanks in advance.
Thanks tom.
When I said " After select virtio driver from the iso mounted..." I meant that I select the folder that you indicate (\vioscsi\2k16\amd64) of the iso you indicate mounted on a virtual CD drive of the VM, after this the installer should load the drivers and continue with the installation (this process I've done it before, at least a dozen times) but instead it shows what is shown in the screenshot.
I don't know what can be happening :-(

Thanks in advance.
The problem was a iso generated from original DVD. Using a external DVD reader work correctly.
Thanks for all.
Best regards.
