I am getting the following error when trying to install Server 2016 Standard. Any idea of the fix?

@tskirish I think I had this same problem and I got it working bythe following way. Evaluation version of Windows Server OS fails to install in VMware Workstation environment; installation needs an direct Internet connection when aquiring the license. An change is needed for the VMware Workstations default network card setting. Change it's default setting at early of making new VM, before installing the Windows Server OS version. Go to 'Customize Hardware' in Virtual Machine Setting, select network adapter and change it's 'value' from the default (NAT) one to a Bridged mode. Press OK and continue to install the Server.
After the installation is finished you can set network adapter setting back to the default (NAT). Those settings are available when the Server EVAL is in shutdown state.

Hah! Thank you so much for mentioning something that I never would have tried. That immediately solved the issue.

If it helps anyone, I had this problem while installing win 10 on a WM. Apparently, the DVD drive is set by default as the highest boot order. On HyperV, while in windowed mode, go to File, Settings, Firmware, and set the storage unit as the first one to boot.

Go to settings and uncheck the floppy driver that VMWare loads by default, it works for me.

The easiest solution is press OK after this error, it will take you to windows\system32
change directory to the boot file directory , it could be c , d or e depending on which type of boot being used.
follow the process thereafter..
