Installation takes place from DVD image whose path contains a space D:\ITCM 12.8  DVD1\WindowsProductFiles_x86


Although it is a good idea to copy the DVD image to the local hard drive and initiate the setup.exe from that path, make sure the path you copy the DVD image to is a simple path, no special characters, preferably short (no longer than 8 characters), e.g. C:\ITCM128
