I want to create a scripted install.  As soon as I click on Add New Scripted Installation from the drop-down box, I get an error message:

No applicable source media is present.  Please import source media before proceeding.

I have 2 source media, both Windows x64 KBEs.  Could someone please point me in the right direction to fix this?  Thanks!

Answer Summary:
The reason for getting the "no applicable source media present" and the "net use v:" error message below is because I had \\k2000\peinst as a mapped drive. Once I disconnected the drive, everything worked as expected. Thanks all for your suggestions!

From the Home tab of your K2000 click Download Media Manager. Install and use the Media Manager to upload your source media...

  • I already have two source media uploaded via Media Manager.
    • Do you see them listed as available under Library > Source Media? If so - click on them to look under Source Media Detail and check under Status...
      • Status for both is Completed.

Make sure that if you are using an ISO to load the media that you are mounting the ISO first, not just pointing to the ISO file itself.

  • I created the source media by unpacking the ISO first and then uploading via Windows Media.
    • I've found that unpacking (aka extracting) isn't as reliable as mounting the ISO with something like Virtual Clone Drive http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html
      • I use virtual clone drive as well, never have any issues with it.
      • I mounted the iso with Virtual Clone Drive and I'm now getting another error message:
        Net Use V:
        System error 1219 has occurred.
        Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.
        I have the iso on my desktop. Thanks for your help.
