The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.
do you have a usb stick? and what is your OS x86 or 64

Not sure this work this late in the game. You can change this stuff later when win is finished
Usb stick or floppy create a .txt file on it and add this. You don't want the CODE boxes. If X86 just change the amd64 to x86
Now rename to AutoUnattend.xml. Restart
