Hello
I have a new Dell T310. I have setup RAID1 and stsrted the installation of SBS2011 using the Dell Open Manage dvd.
I have downloaded my Action Pack Copy of SBS2011 and burned it to a 8.5GB dvd.
When I insert this SBS2011 DVDI get the error message Valid small Business Server 2011 Media not found please insert the Microsoft windows SBS2011 into the DVD

Has anyone had this problem. I have burned several copies of the disc but none work.

thanks in advance

Here's a Microsoft forum about the same thing you're experiencing.

To summarize, Dell had suggested to someone that they install from the SBS media directly as opposed to the Dell wizard.

If it's new Dell hardware, you can always give them a call! But maybe try a direct install first?
