Windows 10 Pro (consumer editions) 2004 failing to install on VMWare Fusion version 11.5.6 (16696540) on macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G6020) even when SHA265 checksum of ISO file is OK

Hello,

 

I’m using VMWare Fusion version 11.5.6 (16696540) on macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G6020).

 

When I try to do a clean install of Windows 10 Pro (consumer editions) 2004 as a guest using an ISO downloaded from the Visual Studio Subscriptions Portal, the installation fails with Windows error code 0x80070570, using either manual or Easy Install. The SHA256 checksum for the downloaded ISO file matches that given by Microsoft.

 

The VM is using the “default” options (2048MB RAM, 2 processor cores, etc.) and my Mac has the spec to run it with room to spare.

 

I’m kind of at a loss. I downgraded from Catalina to Mojave to try and work around the recent problems with macOS 10.15.6 (which the supplemental update didn’t fix for me). Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Alan.
