@pioj
I have some new posts added to your thread about the Windows cannot complete installation Error popup just before first Reboot.
The list of reboot.pro forum is not properly updated so that you will not notice my new posts.

see here http://reboot.pro/in...=22827&p=222860

Forum Issues are encountered similar as described by was_jaclaz

Also in Tutorials Submit New Link fails for me since forms are send insecure

Update:  VHD_Compact PDF  and  WinNTSetup_Settings-2

 

Update WinNTSetup.ini as to make only UEFI Boot Entry in BCD, which is OK for booting from ESP drive.

 

BCD Setting ALL is auto selected in case of USB Boot drive to allow both UEFI and MBR BIOS booting.

 

Fast Capture: Switch AntiVirus Software like MS Defender Off for Faster Capture and Apply (= Setup) with WinNTSetup

 

Fast Apply: Boot from USB with 10XPE boot.wim and then use WinNTSetup to Apply (=Setup) in VHD

 

Capture and Apply in about 3 min for .wim files of about 8 GB

 

Universal Captured WIM files for Local Account containing about 125 extra Non-Microsoft Drivers suitable for Install of Windows 10/11 x64 on any Hardware

In case booting from USB with PE is not available we can use Windows Shift Restart to arrive in Windows Recovery Environment.

 

In WinRE blue menu Advanced Options we can use Command > notepad > File Open > Run as Admin WinNTSetup_x64.exe

 

and Select Captured WIM file of Windows 10/11 x64 and use Setup for Apply in VHD  e.g. Inject New System in VHD next to existing Windows.
