Deploying Office Online Server 2016 to a security hardened drive

I was installing an Office Online Server. And properly the easy thing to install in a complete SharePoint farm setup Smile After installing and configuring the OOS farm. I did a bit of testing. But I ended up with this error:

This error only occur on Word file, not PowerPoint or Excel file Confused smile

After a lot a googling, I found the reason is I installed the OOS on to a D drive “a security hardened drive”.
