MDT 2013 reference Image Deployment error

I was working on a MDT 2013 Deployment and I was deploying a reference Image to test the MDT System. I got the below error message on the screen.

“Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

  1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
  2. Choose your language settings, and then click “Next.”
  3. Click “Repair your computer.”
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
        File:  WindowsSystem32bootwinload.exe
        Status:  0xc000000f
        Info: The application or operating system couldn’t be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors. “
I have mounted the captured image using DISM command
  • dism /mount-wim /wimfile:”E:ISOImagesCapture Image1CapIMG.wim” /index:1 /mountdir:”C:CapIMGMount”
Tried to unmount the image
  • dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:”C:CapIMGMount” /commit
Unmount was not successful and I have discarded the Mount point
  • dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:”C:CapIMGMount” /discard
This time successfully unmounted the disk and tried again.
It was working fine with MDT.
