    Hi guys, im currently studying for the 70-640, using nuggets.

    One of the videos get you to install and configure server-core.

    I am using virtual machines so my problem is trying to load/install/copy over "core configuration" any ideas.

    If people dont know, core is command-line driven.

    One thing i havent done is follow my own advise we give on the helpdesk is reboot to recognise the USB memory stick (although on the other VMs and the machine it is recognised).

    umm why not copy it from a network location? that's what net use is for.

    Hi all,

    managed to work it out.

    I used magic ISO to add a file, then hit the save button to create a iso, transferred that file from there to the VM in question. on the settings option: CD\DVD connections use ISO image file, pointed it to the file then went back to the actual vm, switched to the D: drive it then saw it iso

    By any chance are you referring to an XML answer file that you were trying to use during installation ?

    I haven't seen the cbt nuggets for 70-640 so not quite sure on your reference.

    If you are then another option for future use is to make a smallish 1GB VHD, mount it in another VM, copy the answer file in there, then mount that as a secondary drive on the VM that you're installing - just used this process this weekend during an SBS migration.

    Just another variation.

    Cheers, Greg
