you can try the KB below:

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

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).

Any more ideas?

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?
