Step 16, 18

In step 18 the installation image file installationimage.wim is applied to partition c. But, the c partition is in the script DiskConfigurationFormat.txt shown in figure 2-8 created to hold the system reserved partition.
I suggest the installation image file is applied by ImageX from the network share to the d partition, directly. I therefore suggest the command line "copy y:\installationimage.wim d:" in step 16 to be removed.
That leaves the partition d to be used for the operating system as intended by the the script DiskConfigurationFormat.txt shown in figure 2-8. I suggest the command line in step 18 is changed to reflect this by rewriting it as "e:\ /apply y:\installationimage.wim 1 d:"

There are two versions of the file, I used the one from the 'amd64' part of the AIK, however the same error occurs if you use the x86 version.

We used this version of the AIK:

I have not found a way to make this command work.
