What kind of DVD/CD-ROM drive are you using? How is it connected to the server board?

Maybe the easiest way is to create a USB installation disk: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool. This tool works with Windows Server 2008 R2 as well.

OK if you have configured onboard RAID you'll need to load driver during OS installation. Which onboard RAID are you using, ESRT2 or RSTe?
