When preparing a new Windows Server 2012 R2 system for a new ConfigMgr 2012 R2 site, I ran into an error installing the Windows ADK.  In this case it is version 10; however, I believe the same scenario would apply to 8.1 Update, 8.1, 8, etc.

The installation appears to be working, then performs a rollback with the following error:

Windows ADK installing features
Image path is [\??\C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Deployment Tools\amd64\DISM\wimmount.sys // Could not acquire privileges; GLE=0x514 // Returning status 0x514
Additionally, after installation was successful, it was not possible to mount a WIM or create boot media in ConfigMgr.

Crating ConfigMgr or MDT Task Sequence Media fails with the error:


CreateTSMedia.log file…

using CreateMedia.exe /K: boot … fails


The PowerShell cmdlet New-CMTaskSequenceMedia -BootableMedia … fails

Mounting a WIM with DISM fails


DISM.exe /Mount-Image /ImageFile: …

Error: 1313  A required privilege is not held by the client.


In my case the root cause was that a default permission was removed for the local Administrators group by a domain policy.
