Installing from USB to VHD error 0x80300024

I followed the older guides for installing Windows 8.1 to VHD. After I create and attach the vhd using Diskpart, I get the following error message:

We couldn't install Windows in the location you chose. Please check your media drive. Here's more info about what happened: 0x80300024.

Any suggestions?

I used this guide:

Near the end of the guide (steps 7 and 8), after you have selected the vdisk and added the vdisk, I try to choose the vdisk (vhd) for install and that's then the error message pops up.
