you might want to update the server's OS by running Windows update for that server before trying the install.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

is this an ISO image you burned on to a CD/DVD that you downloaded from the Microsoft website? if it is try running it by downloading and installing virtual clone drive, download the ISO image down to the server's desktop and double click tha ISO which clone drive will mount for you as a CD and run the Office install. if it is not an ISO then try doing it this way. there could be something wrong with the CD you are using.

Have tried it with the CD, when it didn't work the first time we assumed damaged media so downloaded the ISO from partner source. Both throw the same error (ISO is mounted).

what version of the server OS is this again, windows server 2003 standard or enterprise? are you at the server physically trying to install or running it via remote desktop?

50calAuthor Commented:
Server 2008 Standard. Remote desktop, the server is one of our servers but its held in a data centre.

hmmm ok no problem. have you tried putting the server into installation mode? some issues could arise from trying a straight through install via RDP. i can't seem to find anything on my windows 2008 machine that allows me to out it into install mode. have you tried running is as admin?

Yes it's run as admin, not sure about install mode? Where is that setting?
