CSV Import issues when prefilling image src field

I use extracts from my SQL Server database as the csv source file for items in my online store.

I have roughly 15k items and would like the ability to prefill the 'image src' field before an image is available in Shopify -> Settings -> Files. 

This does not appear possible. When the image is absent from my Shopify files, the import message box says, 'Products Imported', but none show up. However, when the image is present in my Shopify files, the import completes successfully.

Does anyone know a way to make this work?
