    You can maybe try moving the temp work dir, program files, drivers so that they are on a different drive. Since it looks like it failed when copying program files.

    If that does not work, try using a different PC.

      found my mistake. installed BIT to the flash drive directly rather than to a temp directory first, then letting WinPE do the install, thereby causing WinPE to source the install files from the same place it was trying to write them to. problem solved.
