In this post I’ll be doing the same thing but centred around building a Windows Server 2016 image using a Hyper-V virtual machine. Installing & Configuring Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and Dependencies. We’ll be using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) version 8443, which (at the time of writing: 24/07/2017) is the most recent release and fully supports Windows Server 2016.

You’ve tired rebooting, stopping the BITS and WU services, deleting %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution but nothing seems to work. Both Windows 10 1607 and Windows Server 2016 require a cumulative update that fixes this specific issue.
