    after you mounted the UPP ISO what drive letter was assigned to it ???
    The command assumes F but you will need to verify and change accordingly
    Dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:"F:\Sources\Install.wim" /Index:2 /ApplyDir:D:\

    Yes, I confirmed the UUP ISO was assigned drive letter F:\

    After that failed, I went to my old way of doing things and here's the wording:

    "We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files."

    Disk Management shows a healthy partition.

    I'm just not understanding this at all.

    Maybe I should just start over? Delete all partitions? Create again from scratch?

    I only have Office 365 and a few other necessary apps installed so far.

    If you haven't already, use MiniTool to verify the drive is GPT, not MBR.

    that command should have worked.....
    As the partition you want to Install the preview OS to is D - correct ??
    And I assume you are using UPP Dump and downloading the 4 Index wim..
    If you not downloading the 4 Index wim and instead downloading just a single index wim (Pro Version Only) - then the command will change

    Dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:"F:\Sources\Install.wim" /Index:1 /ApplyDir:D:\

    really would not matter if MBR or GPT as the D partition already exists as well as the EFI Partition..
    Not sure what the actual issue is - but something not lining up or corresponding correctly

    Using DISM to apply an image and then bcdboot the create the Boot Entry should not even matter in this case..

    Just FWIW. For kicks, I did it this morning. Carved out a 64GB partition on a second SSD (not my boot drive), mounted 19008, ran your command with proper drive letter assignments. Took about 10 minutes. Did the bcdboot, restarted, and it took me straight to the initial setup of a clean install..... setting up devices, etc. and all the way thru to completion of an OS.

    I am using Windows 10 Pro. I'm going to try this one.

    Nope, didn't work. It still can't find the partition.
