Installing new SQL Server 2008 R2 instance on SBS 2011 Standard

Hello Experts,

I would like to create a new SQL instance with SQL Server 2008 R2 Installation Center present on SBS 2011 Standard Server.
I remember that I could proceed with the "New installation or add features to an existing installation" but now it asks me the SQL Server 2008 R2 media that I do not have in my possession...

Where is the trick please ?

on a SBS server you CANNOT install another SQL server instance.
you can only install the SQL as part of the SBS installation.
for other instances, you have to do that on another box

Thank you for your answer !

by what means I have succeeded to install a new instance just yesterday ?
I was blocked because of a server restart scheduled and now it is impossible...
