make sure your Partition is also at least 10 - 12 gigs as setup files will need to be copied to the disk also. or just have a second disk available

Iam running into the same problem. Error msg is the same:

Windows Setup is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation

My config is:

Booting WinPE from USB Stick, use setlw (http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=24365) to make the usb stick fixxed drive Y. Diskpart the internal hdd and running the vista setup.exe from the thumb drive.

From my investigation it looks like my usb stick is set as the active boot partition and the Vista installer needs to write the boot sector it, which it cant because the usb stick is a removeable drive.

Any idea how I can get it to work?

I boot up the winpe via:

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /images/winpe.iso

map --mem /images/winpe.iso (hd32)

map --hook

chainloader (hd32)

boot
