Extracting the Windows 2012 R2 RTM ISO - errors

6 posts in this topic

Starting with a brand new ISO: Windows Server 2012 R2 RTM Datacenter/Standard ISO

My default ISO tool is 7Zip, easy, simple, my standard default app. But it doesn't read UTF. I see the following when I open it:
[bOOT] - Folder
README.TXT - File

The readme says:
"This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system
that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification."

So we tried a native 2012 install to mount the ISO. But that could see the files, but not copy them all.

Then I tried Virtual CloneDrive. This way I can mount the ISO under Win7. Here is where I get different errors based on the tools used.

'E:' drive is the ISO mounted through Virtual CloneDrive
'D:' drive is a NTFS partition

First command to test directory creation.
xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y /T
creates all 871 directories (correct amount)

Second command to copy the files.
xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y
Gets down to this file: E:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll
Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links

Add the option /B - "Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of the link."
xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y /B
Gets down to this file: E:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll
Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links

Add the option /J - "Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very large files."
xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y /J
Gets down to this file: E:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll
Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links

Next tool to test was TeraCopy
Running a copy of everything in the ISO, minus the 'sources' folder, yields 145 files and 18 folders copied to D:\DVD\, and the mounted ISO has 160 files and 18 folders.

Tracking down these files gives this list:
1 - e:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll
2 - e:\support\adfs\en-us\migrate-federationconfiguration.psd1
3 - e:\support\adprep\en-us\adprep.dll.mui
4 - e:\support\adprep\en-us\csvde.dll.mui
5 - e:\support\adprep\en-us\ldifde.dll.mui
6 - e:\support\logging\en-us\actionqueueetw.dll.mui
7 - e:\support\logging\en-us\auditetw.dll.mui
8 - e:\support\logging\en-us\cmisetupetw.dll.mui
9 - e:\support\logging\en-us\oobeldretw.dll.mui
10 - e:\support\logging\en-us\setupcletw.dll.mui
11 - e:\support\logging\en-us\setupetw.dll.mui
12 - e:\support\logging\en-us\setupugcetw.dll.mui
13 - e:\support\logging\en-us\sysprepetw.dll.mui
14 - e:\support\logging\en-us\windeployetw.dll.mui
15 - e:\support\logging\en-us\winsetupetw.dll.mui

xcopy E:\Sources\* D:\DVD\Sources\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y
Gets down to this file: E:\Sources\dlmanifests\microsoft-windows-storagemigration\en-us\stormigplugin.dll.mui
Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links

Then tried using TeraCopy and got lots of errors on multiple .mui and .dll files
Error: Read Error: Incorrect function.

Does anyone have any other ideas for extracting these files cleanly?

Yes had a similar problem & normally use Winrar to extract the Iso, however the easiest way to overcome is use a virtual disc soft like magic disc or the like which gives a virtual DVD drive to mount the Iso & then simply copy the files etc.

Good luck with it!

Which filesystem is the "target for extraction" disk?

Is it by any chance *NOT* NTFS? (the error seems to be an issue with the "target", it is possible that the orginal DVD makes use of symbolic links and that the target - sau it is FAT32 does not support them or that *somehow* they cannot be "translated").

Can you try with Robocopy or with STRARC?

'E:' drive is the ISO mounted through Virtual CloneDrive

'D:' drive is a NTFS partition

E: is the Source ISO

D: is the destination, and I verified that it is NTFS

Here is the output from the Robocopy try:

Queer. :unsure:

ERROR 1 makes little sense, it is usually connected with permissions/access privileges or "file in use".

Which OS are you running it under?

Would it be possible for you to try with a XP?

I know it sounds "crazy, but there are at least a couple reports of a similar behaviour on "more recent" NT based systems:

If you run robocopy with the /LOG option do you have any additional detail?

I have tried Win7 Enterprise, Windows 2008 R2, and Windows 2012.

Run the /log does not give any additional info.

Can anyone else verify the new RTM ISO's are causing them problems? Or verify that you were able to extract all the files from the ISO?

I do not have this problem with any of the other ISO's I've gotten from Microsoft in the past.
