12 * 10.22.112.78 reports: Destination net unreachable.

Either the router is blocking ICMP or its a bad internal route. Can you try to access WU from another machine on your internal network?

I don't think it's the router since I installed Win XP on the same machine and didn't have any issues.

Are you using a stamped disc from Microsoft or a copy?

What do you mean? Since I'm a student I was able to get free licenses from Microsoft for XP and 2003, and to install I just downloaded the ISO from their site.

Ok, so your grabbing an ISO image. Did you verify the MD5 hash before burning it?

I'm not actually burning it. I'm using a KVM VPS service that streams the ISO from another server. I've uploaded the images multiple times thinking it was the ISOs but the same thing happens each time.

Check the hash anyway, especially if it coming from a virtualised environment.

I have the md5 of the files but on the Microsoft site I got them from (Dreamspark.com) it doesn't list their correct values. Assuming the hashs match up, what else could be the problem?

Probably a service running on the server OS that is interfering. If we get to that point, we will investigate.

Ah, ok. I don't know how I can check to see if the checksums match up though since Microsoft doesn't give the correct one.
