I've seen an issue like this which turned out to be an issue with the HP SmartStart disk. If this is the case then you have 2 options. You could either download a fresh copy of the SmartStart disk and try again or you could install directly from the windows disk then install the drivers after.

Are you sure you are installing the "full" version of server 2008 r2 and not just "core" server which is effectively just a command prompt after installation?
