Hi im trying to install sbs standard 2011 on a HP ProLiant ML110 G6 i can't use the ez CD as it only supports up to SBS 2008 and every time i boot of the DVD i get this error

 "A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, cd,dvd or usb flash drive please insert now"

Meaning that the install stops in it's tracks, i have setup raid 1 in the bios and would really appreciate some help. the disks are all original MS disks fresh out the sealed packet.

It seems to me that it is loosing the ability to see the DVD drive once the install disk has booted.

Is there a way round this?
Is there an easy install for SBS 2011?

All help much appriciated as this is for a client and i am supposed to installing it on site on monday....

I have only mounted the iso, but it seems to me SBS 20011 requires a dual layer DVD player, do you have one?
Alternatively you can install from USB:

Long shot, turn off IDE simulation in BIOS? Turn off AHCI?

SBS 2008 on the ez cd didn't work :(, i am trying the USB method as the DVD is dual layer (nice iso tool RobWill thanks)

The bios settings are set to raid so i think that means all other options are off.

Thanks lets see what happens.
