Hi , I am installing windows server 2008 R2 on intel server r1000 and during installation it is giving the error that DVD/CD drive drivers interface not found , What is the issue?
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.
We have two different onboard RAID, RSTe and ESRT2, which you can select in BIOS. They use different drivers.
Anyway, here are the links:
