    “the D denotes the drive where Windows is installed, if it is in C drive, replace it with C.”
    D: shpuld be the drive from where the Windows 10 was installed. That is the drive where the Windows 10 ISO was loaded. In my case it was E:. When I tried the command with C: it did not work. However when I used E: it worked smoothly.
