You can use ServerManagerCMD command to install roles/feature and PsExec to do it on remote servers from text file.

ServerManagerCMD explanation at

is this Windows Server 2008 not 2008 R2, right (because "Removable Storage Manager" feature is removed in R2 :) )

so, for R1 use on a server

ServerManagerCMD -install Removable-Storage

using PsExec from one of your server or workstation with RSAT installed

psexec @text_file_with_servers ServerManagerCMD -install Removable-Storage

where "text_file_with_servers" is a text file with servers names, one per line

All Roleas and Feature to install you will find on this blog

You need to use Removable-Storage feature's name in OS language :)

in case of syntax problem you can also try with

psexec @text_file_with_servers ServerManagerCMD "-install Removable-Storage"

where "Removable-Storage" is in OS language
