First, It is not supported to install and Configure SharePoint without using a domain controller. you will face more issues like the directory permission issue moreover, the Users & Groups, People Picker will not work!

In your case, you should first

  • Join your machine to the domain this start install and configure the SharePoint.
  • Make sure that the SharePoint installation media is located ub a physical. drive

Note: if it's a dev machine, you can install the domain in the same machine but It is not recommended to install the Domain Controller and SharePoint on the same server in Production that will effect on performance.
