I'm having a issue when using FOD via powershell. I creating an Win Server 2012r2 virtual lab environment for studying. Heres a run-down of what I'm doing. I have successfully uninstalled and remove the following windowsfeature xps-viewer, telnet-server, telnet-client. Command used (uninstall-windowsfeature xps-viewer, telnet-server, telnet-client -remove). I know once you remove the binaries you need the media to reinstall them. I have used the dism command to extract files from the ISO to the local disk with the following command(dism /mount-wim /wimfile:d:\sources\intsall.wim /index:2 /mountdir:c:\packages /readonly)

Then I use the following command to reinstall (install-windowsfeature xps-viewer, telnet-server, telnet-client -source c:\packages\windows\winSxS ) this works but once the system is restarted and I try the same command within PS I receive the follow error: "the source files could not be download. Use the "source" option to specify the location. I have specified the same location where they were installed.
